COIiliEGE flEWS LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE Volume II. Annville, Pa., Thursday, September 29, 1910 fio. 1 Foot Ball Season Opens Lebanon Valley Loses First* Game to Indians On Wednesday, Sept. 21. our Var- sity football team played its initial game of the season at Carlisle, having the strong Indian team as its opponent. Quite a large delegation of students cheered the squad as they boarded the morning train for Carlisle. The Red-skins outweighed our team b ' at least fifteen pounds to the man, but regardless of this fact, our plucky little team fearlessly charged their opponents when the opening whistle blew. Lebanon Valley kicked off, and the Indians received the ball on their 35-yard line. Owing to the lack of our defensive work, the Indians did most of the scoring in the first quarter. L. V. held the ball for several downs in each quarter, and when the game ended they had the ball on the Indians' 15-yard line, with the score 53-0 in the Indians' favor. Coach Glenn Warner of the Indians said in regards to our boys, "This is the best team you ever sent down from Lebanon Valley. You played a pluck- ier game than I thought you would, and under tho new rules, 53-0 is a better score than 35-0 last year." At present coach Forrest of Lan- caster, assisted by Prof. Wanner, is putting the team thru a hard daily scrimmage, in preparation for the Swarthmore game on Saturday. Bequests to Lebanon Valley. Dr. Daniel Eberly Leaves Several Large Gifts By the will of the late Daniel Eb- erly, of Hanover, Pa., Lebanon Valley College receives the income from his valuable farms, aud the residue of his estate after other bequests shall have been paid. The larger farm was in fact willed to the College by the late Mr. Bitting- er, father-in-law of Dr. Eberly, sub- ject to the life interest of the latter. This is a large farm valued at forty thousand dollars, the income of which is to be applied to the salary of the Josephine Bittinger Eberly Professor of the Latin Language and Literature, the chair being named in the will. The Hanover farm of the late Dr. Eb- erly is willed [to the College on con- dition that the proceeds only be used to assist in defraying expenses of worthy students. The residue of the estate is to be kown as "The Daniel Eberly Fund" and the proceeds are to be loaned to worthy students. In addition the valuable library is also bequeathed to the College.

Editorial Although a week has already passed since the opening of the College year, the Editorial Staff greets the students and friends of Lebanon Valley College with this issueof the " College News. " Owing to a slight difficulty with the business management, the "News" is appearing a little late. Vacation is over, and at the present writing, everybody is back to hard work. Quite a number of the old students did not return this year, but we are glad to state that many new faces are in evidence around the Col- Jege halls and campus. To the new students we bid a hearty welcome, and invite them to join earnestly in all our C illege activities. The l'ter- ary societies, christian associations and athletics afford opportunities for all to engage their spare moments. Each of these movements need all the available material, and old and new students alike are urged to identify themselves with some or, if possible, all of them for the upbuilding of their Alma Mater. Doubtless every student came to College this fall, determined to get the most possible benefit out of his course. We admire such a motive in everybody, but in order to reach this end, above all things, do not be a "grind". It is the "grind" that the college man despises most of all. What he wants is a good student, who doss well with his books, but who does not hesitate to enter into all col- lege functions, and give part of his time and energy for the good of the College. With the opening of this College year, the "News" is glad to state that Lebanon Valley faces the most prosper- ous year in her history. The large number of new students, the increas- ed interest of Alumni and friends, the decrease in the general debt, and the bounteous gifts of friends give every- thing a very bright outlook. Our hope is that these interests may con- tinue and that the coming year will be the greatest in the history of Leb- anon Valley College. The late Dr. Eberly was a true friend of Lebanon Valley College. His bequest, with that of his father- in-law, Mr. Bittinger, forms the basis of Lebanon Valley's endowment. Coming at a time of rejoicing and good cheer over the recent successful debt effort, it gives new encourage- ment to Faculty, students and all con- nected with Lebanon Valley College. Dr. Eberly attended the meeting of the Board of Trustees last June and expressed himself as highly gratified with the financial management of the College. In his death the College loses one of her warmest friends. But he is not dead. He lives in the monuments erected by him in Leba- non Valley College. In a subsequent issue we shall give a sketch of the life of Dr. Eberly. New Members of the Faculty. Students and friends of the college generally will be gratified to learn of the high scholastic attainments and the successful teaching ability of the new members of the faculty. Miss Parks who succeeds Mrs. Scblichter as Professor of English is a graduate of Northwestern Univer- sity, and continued her post-graduate studies in Columbia Unhersity. Be- fore coming to Lebanon Valley Miss Parks had won an enviable reputation as a teacher of English, the last two years hvaing been spent as an instruc- tor in Teachers' College, New York. Prof. Sheldon comes to us from Susquehanna University where he has built up the Conservatory of Music of that institution. He is an able in- structor and his work already bears evidence of thoroughness and an ad- herence to high standards that argues well for the future of the Conserva- tory. He is ably assisted by Miss Brown as teacher of voice, the same position having been held by her in the facultv of Susquehanna University. Mrs. Sheldon as assistant teacher of piano comes to us with a record as a successful teacher. Fred W. Light, '00, is instructor on the violin in the Conservatory of Music. He was in town on Tuesday and Wednesday in the interest of the department. Fall Reception Christian Associations Entertain New Students. The first social event of the year was the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. re- ception to new students held in the Ladies' parlors on Saturday evening, Sept. 17. Many new students and friends of the College took this opportunity to get acquainted. Appropriate address- es were made by Prfsident Keister and Dean Shenk. Mr. J. K. Lehman, Chairman of the committee, is to be commended for the success of the re- ception. Affer the refreshments were served, each clasp gave appropriate class and college yells. The next re- ception of the kind will be held at the opening of the Spring term. Y. M. C. A. On Sunday afternoon Mr. Paul Koontz presented the Bible study pro- position to the members of the Y. M. C. A. in a forcible and earnest manner. He pointed out how essent- ial Bible study is for the students. Messrs. Ehrhart, Grimm and Ricbie made remarks on the same topic. Two strong poin s were brought out, "Ig- norance of the Bible is a Crime and Strong Men Study the Bible." Hearty Co-operation is Needed in order to make this most important Phrase of College Life a Success.

He was a member of the Class of 1911. "Hienie" as he was called by the boys, was of a genial and friendly disposition. He was born on the 17th October. 1887 and died August 10, 1910. He graduated from the North Annville High Sshool in 1903, attend- ed the Lebanon Business College,, and Lebanon Valley Academy. His classmates will miss his cheer- ful and friendly sympathy. Kaloze- tean Literary Society will always revere his memory, and a vacant seat is there for one who was one of her most devoted and loyal members. Long may his soul rest in peace.

Assists Foreigners in Prep- aration for Citizenship An important phase of our Y. M. C. A. work is that which is carried on among the foreigners at the quarries near Annville. This work was begun last year under rather adverse cir- cumstances, but interest on the part of both teachers and pupils was keen, and the results were soon obvious. The school is held three times each week in a building situated aoout two miles from Annville, near the quarries where the men work. Here Italians, Slavs, Polanders and Germans all come together to learn English. The teach- ers, boys from the local, Y. M. C. A., are always greeted by these men with "Hello Teac.ier," and a pleaasnt smile and handshake. As a result of last year's work, two Italians procured their first naturalization papers. When these men started they could speak very little English, and read less. Rob- ert's "English for Coming Ameri- cans," which is specially fitted for this work, is used with great success. The outlook this year is brighter than last, as the attendance is larger and interest better'. At present all the pupils can read some little Eng- lish, a fact which is very encouraging to the teacherc. This work should be kept up with ren wed courage, sup- ported by the who ^.JM. C. A., as it is a chance to g e the.K' men, who really want to lear , somei ing they can get from no otr ^r source. Alumni Attended Game E. E. Renn, '10, J. Warren Steh" man, '09, Max Lehman, '07. and Ora B. Harnish. '06, attended the football game between Swathmore and Lebanon Valley on Saturday, October 1.

That Athletics are of vital import- ance to any institution cannot be gain- said. They relate to its material ad- vancement both as an advertising me- dium and promoter of health among students, not to mention the worry saved the faculty by giving the boys an outlet for those energies which otherwise would take a different and ■sometimes very undesirable course. During the past several years ath- letics at Lebanon Valley have lain un- der a cloud, caused by elements both within and without the institution. Because of this ibe managers have ex- perienced the greatest difficulties in arranging and maintaining successful schedules, in fact they have been act- ually forced to abandon them when •only partly completed. That such conditions existed is a shame, the stig- ma of which can be removed only by the most progressive policies About a year ago Athletics at Lebanon Valley took on new life. Thanks to the progressive policies and unswerv- ing energies of last year's managers both of football and baseball, very successful schedules were completed. The football season was in many re- spects the best in our history. Ihe general state of lethargy concerning athletics began to disappear. 'Ihe clouds of opposition which had been so blighting began to rise, and from the mists which had enveloped our institu- tion, a new spirit came forth. Very few of last year's football stars returned this season and gloom was again settling around us. but the combined energies of our manager and captain were equal to the occasion. An efficient coach was secured and the boys began to work hi earnest. Dur- ing the past week the scrub team has more than doubled its strength both in weight and numbers. Prof. Wan- ner has assumed control of this squad and owing to his genial nature and knowledge of the game, their spirit and effectiveness has reached a plane never before attained by any second team at Lebanon Valley College. Thi3 spirit has awakened an interest not only among the members of the teams but the student body in general, and the scenes on the Athletic field during afternoon practice vie in in- terest with many regular games that have formerly been played there. This spirit does not stop with the stu- dent body, but is reaching the faculty, who by their t resence on the field and kindly councils, have rendered much valuable service. The executive com- mittee of the Association is about to offer a new constitution, which will provide for tennis, track and field sports. The track proposition has been received with much ardor and present conditions seem to indicate that Lebanon Valley will be able tJ put forth men in this department qualified to bring her the greatest honor. What do these conditions in- dicate ? Is it not a prophecy that the near future will witness the realiza- tion of a dream, which has proven illusive so long, and that Lebanon Valley will be relieved of the one en- cumbrance which has kept her from assuming the foremost place among the so-called small colleges of Penn- sylvania? This is no idle vision. A gymnasium will soon be a reality. There is, however, much to be done. The race has onlv begun. The final outcome rests with each individual member of the student body and alum- ni association. When a long felt need becomes a positive demand, that need will be satisfied. We all know that our col- lege and Alma Mater needs the gym- nasium,— let us make it a demand. This we can do by freely lending as- sistance to our teams. As students we should deem it a sacred obligation to ourselves and our school that we pay our athletic fee, and if possible identify ourselves with some phase of athletics. This in return will strengthen both our body and mind. If we cannot make the varsity, we need not worry, we receive more than wo give. In this way we help to develop a varsity that can win us victories, and whether we win or not is a matter of economic importance to each of us. The value of our diplomas will in- crease in the same proportion as the fame of our college. Let us deter- mine to present a winning team. The alumni can help by contributions and when possible attendance at gamep. You may become a member of our as- sociation and give us renewed enthusi- asm by your cheers. Let us all, by freely giving our fees and services promote clean healthy athletics at Lebanon Valley. Thus we will become an honor to ourselves and our college. ITEMS OF INTEREST Coutinued From First Page Misses Ely and Weidman were visitors at Palmyra on Sunday. Charles G. White, a new student and a member of 1912, accompanied his father, Mr. George White, to Gettysburg on Tuesday, September 27. Rev. Mark G.

A. in a clear and pleasing manner. The ladies intend to carry on Mission and Bible Study classes throughout the year. Their plan is to pray and work for greater things. Hearty co-operation is neces- sary in order to make a success of this phase of college life. The vocal se- lections were well rendered.

I COLLEGE NEWS Football The footbali game on Saturday against Swathmore was one of which we cannot exactly be proud. Nor can we at the same time exactly censure the team who did such good work against the Indians. The squad left Annville, not with a certainty of winning the game, but certainly with a secret feeling of moderate success. Every man hoped to bring back some laurels for L. V. but such unfortunately was not the case. Songs and cheers were lacking, for several reasons, and after loafing about Swathmore campus for several hours, the team spiritedly went in a body to the field. The first down evidently killed the game. Swathmore, although she gained nothing in yards, made a heavy rush against our fellows causing un- doubtedly a little surprise. The L. V. men not expecting Swathmore to "rcugh it up" so much, seemed to loose confidence, and as a result 47-0 was the final score. We certainly should not criticise the boys but by better support encourage them. This will make our next game a victory.

V, Boys Played Fast Came and Made Visitors Sit Up and Take Notice In the first game at Annville Dick- inson was given an unexpected jar by the boys in white and blue. The game was an interesting one and was wit- nessed by a large crowd of students and visitors. While this was not an entire victory for L. V. the results of the game were exceedingly encouraging and new enthus'asm has been added to the game. The good fight put up by the home team is but reflection of what interest and encouragement on the part of the student body will do for athletics at L. V. C. The game was called at 3 :00 o'clock. During the first quarter Dickirson scored a touchdown and a field goal. In the second and third quarters the pigskin was kept near the middle of the field. The first half ended with the ball on Dickinson territory with L. V. carrying it rapidly towards their opponent's goal. During the labt quarter Dickinson again scored a touchdown after several L. V. men had been knocked out by rough play- ing. |l-.|V. was outweighed twenty-five pounds to the man. Dickinson made gains by old-time plunging while L. V. played all around their opponents in speed and in putting the ndw rules into practice. Captatin Lehman, Hayes, S. Hertzler and Hensel played star games for L. V. while Dunn made greatest gains for Dickinson. The lineup: L.V. Positions Dickinson Tallman Left end Miller (H.Kreider) (Stafford) Charlton Left tackle - Felton (Capt.)

Brunner, Box 99, all other matter to College News, Annville, Pa. Editorial In addressing the students on the subject of Athletics at the Fall term reception, Dean Shenk made very time- ly remarks regarding a gymnasium for Lebanon Valley College. He call- ed attention to the fact that as long as the coliege was burdened with debt, and was without immediate prospect of endowment, it would have been folly for the authorities to have direct- ed their efforts toward securing funds for the erection of a new building, which, however desirable in itself, would have added to the current ex- pense and made (he path of the finan- cial management even more difficu't than it was. But now with the debt canvass in good shape, and with a good ^asis of endowment, in the Eber- ly-Bittinger bequests, the Dean held that the time is ripe to push the gym- nasium project. The necessity of a gymnisium for Lebanon Valley College can not be questioned. Many students do not care for the violent exercise o f foot- ball or baseball, and some are forbid- den by their parents to indulge in them or other sports. Yet they are en- titled to enjoy the benefit of physical training, and have just cause for complaint if the opportnity is not given them. jn the second place, during half the collegiate year the weather condithms are such as to exclude regular outdoor exercise. It is during these winter months that every college student should be required to take regular and systematic exercise in a gymnasium. It is during these months that the most remunerative of all college sports —basket ball is played, and we have been very much hampered in maintain- ing athletic relations with certain in- stitutions because of inability to meet their teams in basket ball. Again, the problem of discipline for dormitory students would be largely solved by the gymnasium. The physi- cal activities of youth can be directed in no more legitimate channel than that of exercise in well regulated gymnastics ; close these channels, and this activity will seek less desirable avenues — that may lead to the neces- sity fcr discipline by the Faculty. One of the best methods by which to train body ?nd mind alike is to organ- ize play and give energy, the surplus energy of youth proper direction. Biological Field Club.

The boys left Annville on Saturday morning on the Flyer for Muhlenburg College with high hopes of bringing back a victory, but were dissapointed. The score was a surprise to all the students, both on and off the team, and when particulars were weighed it was evident that Muhlenburg out- classed us, but only because our team has not been supported by the student body. The team showed remarkable courage and pluck and fought like "grim death." The spirit with which they have been playing shows that they have the possibilities of a first class team. But these possi- bilities can never be developed without men to scrimmage them. At Muh- lenburg the same old trouble was man- fested : a lack of defensive practice. Tne game was called promptly at 3 :00 p. m. Muhlenburg hicked off. Hertzler received the ball and carried it to their 50-yard line for first down. After repeated attempts to gain we were forced to punt, through which Muhlen- burg made their first touch-down. The first quarter ended 12—0. Mulenburg again kicked off and For- rest carried the ball to their 45-yard line ; but we were again forced to punt, after which Muhlenburg tried an out- side kick. Forest received it and rushed it to our 25-yard line. After repeated gains on our forward passes, Widmeyer took the ball across for our first touch-down, The same quarter we had the ball within Iwo feet of the goal but were held for downs. Second Quarter ended 24-6 for Muhlenburg. In the third and fourth quarters our boys became discouraged on account of the unfairness of the officials. The game ended with a score 40-6 for Muh- lenburg, and be it said, to the shame of the disloyal, disinterested and cowardly student body whose duty it is to sup- port its foot-ball heroes who are sacri- ficing more than is at first glance ap- parent, all for the^ institution they love so dearly. The line-up in Saturday's game was as follows : Right end, Kreider, Hertzler; light tackle, Hensel ; right Guard, Beaver, Smith ; Center, Marshall; left guard, Kennedy; left tackle, Charlton; left end, Hayes, Frost; quarterback, For- rest; right halfback, W.'dmeycr, Hertzler; left halfback, Loser; full back, Lehman, Capt. The boys r laved a splendid game and although defeated again, they ex- pect to hold Gettysburg to a very close score after which game the hardest part of our schedule will be over. Let every man physically able to "bear arms" present himself for dutv every night the team reports for prac- tice. Y. W. C. A. The meeting was led by Miss Edna Yarkers, who spoke on the subject: "Women of the Bible." The leader took for the basis of her remarks four of the most prominent women char- acters to be found inBible history- Eve, Rebecca, Ruth, and Mary the mother of Christ. She outlined brief- ly the life and distinguishing charac- teristics of each, whether weakness or stength and applied each to the pesent day. The meeting was vey interesting throughout. A spirit of devotion was mainfestly present and there was no reserve on the part of the girls. Various other characters were discuss- ed and opirions given. Although the number at this meet- ing was smaller than at any other previous meeting held this year, the interest shown was greater, and it is to be hoped that we may be able to keep up that interest and increase the attention at the same time.

Does a man owe his first duty to his Alma Mater or to his class? Should an underclassman be taught class-spirit or college-spirit? These are questions all tending to the same an- swer, but illustrative of a fact, the importance of which too many students are ignorant. The next is?ue of "The College News" will contain an account of an inter-class-contsst. The right of su- premacy of one class over another, ac- cording to college etiquette, is of great impoi t because it is the sum- mum bonum of all underclaspmen's aspirations. Here is the point upon which Freshmen are wrongly instruct- ed. In itself the right of supremacy is all well and good, but when it is held higher than the weal of the col- lege, it bfcotr.es a dangerous thing. Dangerous because it causes a stu- dent first comir.g under its influences, to become selfish in his views, inso- lent in his actions, destructive in his habits and weak in nis charac er. It is true that a Freshman is never blamed for anything that he does and justly so; but it should strike him for- cibly, to know that he is expected to work firbt for the interests of the col- lege that has so graciously taken him under her care. His class interests should not in the least be diminished but lather strengthened. It is soon evident what attitude a Freshman takes towards this question. Perhaps he is not altogether to be blamed if he goes wrong. But the man who loves college more than class, will submit himself to authority, very promptly. He will not wait to be called upon to carry a varsity man's suit-case to the train when the team leaves, and will be just as prompt to receive them when they return. He will consider it his duty to obey all rules as laid down by the Senior Junior council because it is a recognized au- thorit/ . The men who come to col- lege ,come to be trained ,and why should they fail to recive training in that which all men need and few have— respect for authority, or in other words, the true spirit of subordi- nation ? We can never lead until we are willing to be led. The manager of the foot ball field often has to suffer because under- classmen have no conception of col- lege spirit. The field must be lined off; goal posts must be planted and a hundred other things have to be done whic h an underlassrnan is so admir- ably fitted to do because he has not yet been trusted with higher and more weighty duties. These come in their turn. It is certain that most underclass- men view this matter from a some- what different angle, and imagine that these duties are thrust upon them for the m c re reason that they are under- classmen. This is not the case. There is another and saner reason. Those duties are given to him because it is not quite in keeping to give the managership of athletic teams, the editorship of papers and other publica- tions and the chairmanship of com- mittees to Freshmen and Snphmores. We need not go into detail as to just why this is so. It behooves every uderclassman not to bethink himself too seriously of his class dignity, but remember that the interests of his col- lege come first and that he who does well those duties given him when an under-classssman, will receive the higher and larger duties ol an upper- classman.

The second monthly meeting of the Biological Field Club was held on Wednesday evening of last week. The program which was exceptionally in- teresting was rendered before a large and interested audience. Mr. E. A. Spessard who accompani- ed Professor Derickson and his party to Bermuda several summers ago, gave a short account of how sponges grow and are gathered. He also gave a short description of the structure of a sponge. Mr. F. R. Kennedy, a native of Jamaica, presented a lecture on sev- eral of the most important vegetables and fruits used in that land of the West Indies. Mr. Kennedy is always an interesting and able talker, but his number on this program proved exceptionally interesting. Among many others, he presented the native aople, mango and the coffee plant. Eery person who heard him could not help but be filled with a desire to some day visit that land of the Sunny South. Mr. Lester Spessard read a paper on the Hypnotism of Annimals, which threw a great deal of light upon the subject. Since man is biologicaly an animal, he was to a certain extent included in the discourse. Mr. Spessard gave a clear idea of what hypnotyism is and carefully distin- guished i* from several other psych- logical phenomena closely allied to it, but quite distinct. He also showed the difference of hypnotyism in men and in animals. Y. M. C. A. There was an interesting meeting of tho Y. M. C. A. on Sunday after- noon. During the previous meetings held since school opened, the various committees have had the opportunity to present the various phases of our work. On the past Sunday Mr. Oliver T. Ehrhart. President of the Y. M. C. A., presented a special message to the members present. His Subject was "Strength of Character". He brought out strongly the importance of character building in the real success- ful life. "Character is what a man is; it is the latent force in our life. We feel one man's presence more than an- other, becau e of his character. A foundati n is necessary for all struc- Havs Your Printing Done by The Journal Publishing Co. ANNVILLE, PA.

There are certain principles that we should have, which will stand the test of time." Among the principles mentioned were: Truth, Purity, Will Power, Resolution, In- dependance and Individuality. An interesting discussion followed. Mr. Leibold showed that in past his- tory men emphasized strongly, phys- ical bravery and mental power, while to-day spiritual and moral ideals pre- dominate. He showed the great influ- ence of Washington on the character of the nation, and other great men. Mr. Ritchie brought out the thou- ght that we might have hidden sins that destroy character. If we believe we can hide this influence "we de- ceive ourselves" for God will see us. Mr. Saylor gave us some thoughts on the inpression of the strong chara- cter at Northfield. Mr. E. Spessard followed with suit- able remarks. He said "a college is no stronger than its weakest member and that we should each find out our place in college life. It may be to attend classes regular, to play foot ball or to subscribe to the College news or maybe, all." Mr. Mullhollan made some rem- arks along the same line showing us that we should take a great example and build a character like Christ. Mr. Brunner showed how we should follow the lines of duty laid down by our conscience. Character is im- mortal. We should therefore help to influence some one to a higher plane of living. Mr. Ehrhart then called attention to the small attendance at these meet- ings. He urged every man to bring another fellow to the meetings. Every man in Lebanon Valley College should be present on Sunday afternoon at 1 :00 o'clock. The Y. M. C. A. is the place where character is built. Do you want us to help ycu on your foundation? If you do, then come. Buy a Ticket On Thursday evening, Oct. 20tb, the Clionian Literary Society will present in Engle Conservatory, a highly enter- taining comedy in three acts called "Breezy Point."

Outplays Gettysburg in the In- augural Game, Although She Loses 24-0 What was, to the writers mind, the hardest fought game of the season thus far, was played last Thursday at Gettysburg before 800 spectators. The game was marred by many injuries, three of our boys being carried off the field. Capt. Lehman won the toss and chose the east goal as his to de- fend. Capt. Aldinger kicked off and Hertzler ran the ball back for a gain of 15 yards. Our boys gained conse- cutively and were within 15 yards of our goal when Wilson was layed out. This weakened our offence to such an extend that Gettysburg held us for downs. Lehman tried a field goal but failed. Gettysburg then took the ball on our 25 yard line and rushed it through for the first score. Gettys- burg with old style football gained steadily through our line and advanced the pigskin to cur 15 yard line. Here injuries necessitated the removal of Loser from our line with a badly wrenched knee. 12-0 ended the first quarter. Second quarter the same sad tale is to be told, our boys being up against too heavy a team to stop the onslaught of their more burly opponents and so the second quarter ended with the score 18-0. In the third and fourth quarters our boys came back strong, although Charlton was out of the game entirely, which again weakened our line. L. V. held their opponents for downs twice within their one yard line. Here again L. V. was within 15 yards of her goal. Forrest tried a field goal but missed by three unlucky inches. In the fourth quarter coach Veil ran in new men against our exhausted eleven. Gettysburg again scored making the score 24-0. What the fellows need most is encouragement and not in a verbal form, but by coming out and giving them good hard scrimmage. Let a good bunch report this week so as to round out the team and put them in top notch condition for the Indians on Saturday. Let us prove the white man's superiority by defeating the redskins on Saturday. The line-up was as follows : Kreider, right end; Paul Loser, right tackle; Biever, right guard; Marshall, center; Ken- nedy, left guard ; Charlton, Harnish, left tackles; Hays, left end; Light, right half; Lehman, Capt., fullback; Wilson, Erb, left half ; Frost, Forrest, quarter back. Star Course The Star Course committee of the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. has contracted for an excellent series of entertainments to be held at different periods of the year from Oct., 29, 1910, to March 20,1911 inclusive. It has been the aim to increase the popu- larity of the course and to strengthen its quality. The committee feels free to announce that they have pro- cured the best entertainers the agency offers. Tickets are now on sale. Season ticket, $1.00 each; single tickets, 35 cents each. All are expected to help the cause along by purchasing one or more season tickets. Y. W. C. A. The Y. W. C. A. meeting on Sun» day afternoon, was led by Miss Lizzie Lau. The subject was "Our Savior's Greatest Promise." The leader com- mented upon it in an interesting and helpful way but there was not very much general discussion on the sub- ject. Every girl in the association should show her interest by being present end taking an active part in the meetings. Calendar. Wednesday, October 26, 7 p. m. — Mathematical Round Table.

The conditions of athletics at Leb- anon Valley may at times seem rather discouraging, but we have no reason to despair. Every cloud has a silver lining, and indications are that this side will soon be turned. We are not first in athletics, but considering the way in which we are handicapped by indifference among those who should lead in spirit, we on the ave- rage, make a good showing among the small colleges of our state, with whom we have athletic relations. There is one field however in which we are proud to say we stand second to none. There is one phase of col- lege life ex'sting here that has been praised from convention platforms in every section of our state. This is our Y. M. C A. At the President's Convention held at State College last spring our Presi- dent was made chairman of the policy committee which is the most important committee of the convention. Out Association furnished one of the four bands of men who under the auspices of the State Association did religious work among the Lumbei Jacks the past summer. During the past year we have organized and successfully conducted a school for foreigners, in which more than twenty foreign speak- ing men are taught, by the most mod- ern methods, the use of the English language. As a direct result of which two men have received their naturaliaztion papers. The progressive spirit which our As- sociation has shown toward all such movements which have for their goal the extension of our power and in- fluence for good led the Ex-State Sec- retary, Mr. Kohler, to call ours the most representative college association of the state. This, then, is a phase of college life of which we can be proud. Our asso- ciation stands as a power and should enlist the services of all the fellows who wish to make their lives count in the great battle for reform and civic righteousness that is sweeping over our country. In every college there are certain peculiar conditions which tend to make the atmosphere of the district from all other institutions, and Lebanon Valley hasher full share. Our societies and their organizations tend to divide our male student body against itself, and if no opposing force was offered mighc work to our detriment if not our ruin. The Y. M. C. A. happily offers just the force needed to bind us in one solid mass. Here the fellows can meet on common ground and discuss without reserve all the questions which perplex and annoy them. These heart to heart expres- sions tend to cheer, comfort, and in- spire. They clear our atmosphere and cast into the backgrounds all the pretty jealousies which may arise from class and society differences. They sweeten life for all. No other organization should com- mand more respect or a larger follow- ing, for in serving it we serve all. In advancing its standard we lift our whole institution to a higher plane of service and extend her influence to those quarters where it is most need- ed. Let every student pledge himself to offer his best efforts this most worthy cause. Prof. H. E. Wanner witnessed the Lebanon Valley-Gettysburg game at Gettysburg on Thursday. Breezy Point* The first performance of the year proved to be a great success when the members of the Clionian Literary So- ciety presented "Breezy Point," a play in three acts, to a large and ap- preciative audience in Engle Conserva- tory on Thursday evening Oct. 20th., 1910. This play was given for the benefit of the Clio Society under the direction of Lillian Cairns Eby. The first act captivated the audience and the latter two kept up the interest to the very last and the audience departed very much pleased with the rendition. All of the characters were extreme- ly interesting. Cast of characters follows : Aunt Debby Dexter, Mistress o Breezy Point, Edna Yarkers; Elinor Pearl, of unknown parentage, Edith Lehman; Ashrael Grant, a maid of all work, Lottie Spessard; Mrs. Hard- scratch, with business propensities, Bertha Spessard; The Hardscratch Twins, who "never tell nothin'," Ora Bachman, Edith Gingrich; Mehitible Doolittle, Manufacture of catarrh snuff and bitters, Grace Smith; Ber- nice Veron, Carrie Light; Laura Le- high, Clara Horn; Edith Norton, Flor- ence Christeson; Clarice Fenleigh, Elizabeth Lau ; (Aunt Debby's Summer Boarders) Fantine, Miss Vernon's French Maid, Verda Snyder; Old Clem, the Gypsy, Helen Brightbill.

Al hough the meeting on Sunday afternoon was not as well attended as pome previous meetings, there was, nevertheless, a deep spiritual tone manifested. Mr. Brunner presented his subject in an able and earnest manner. In "Apparent Failures in the Christian Life," he showed that success in the Christian life "was not attained by sudden flight," but by striving for the happy medium in our lives, and by being lenient in our judging of others. Two principles were presented. First, look to our own experience and see what it may mean to us, and second, look at the other fellows. If our own ideal in life is further away at the end than the beginning of our lives, we should not think we are apparant failures. If we strive after the best, our lives will not have been apent in vain. An interesting discussion followed the ad- dress. Items of Interest A. O. Kauffman, '11, visited L. A.

SHIFFER WEST MAIN STREET ANNVILLE, PA Volume II. Annville, Pa., Tuesday, flovembei* 1, 1910 Ho. 6 Faculty Loses Honored Member MRS. EBY RESIGNS AS HEAD OF ORATORY DE- PARTMENT The NEWS regrets to announce the resignation of Mrs. Lillian Cairns Eby as Director of the depatment of Oratoy and Pubilc speaking. Notice was given last week owing to a call coming to Rev J. A .Eby to serve as pastor of the First U. B. Church, Los Angeles, California. The report that the work in Oratory will be discontinued or carried under inferior conditions is altogether un- founded. President Keister has re- quested Mrs. Eby to procure another Emerson graduate to fill the vacancy, and thus continue the present system which has proved itself so valuable during the past year. Just when this resignation will take effect has not been published, but it is understood that the new director will take charge before Mrs. Eby leaves for California, and the present senior class in Oratory will graduate as intended. The next issue of the NEWS * ill announce the exact date when Mr. J. W. Ischy will present his Senior re- cital. Mr. Ischy will read a cutting from J. G. Hollands "Seven Oaks," and will be assisted by the other members of the Senior Class. Nearly a year has been spent in preparation for this recital which will require be- tween an hour and an hour and a half in rendition. The other member of the Senior class will give recitals at times stated later. Prof. H. E. Wanner, head of the Department of Chemistry and Physics, was in Philadelphia on Saturday where he witnessed the Penn-Indian foot ball game. Lebanon Valley Loses Again Lebanon Valley again went down to defeat at the hands of the redskins to the tune of 20 to 5. During the first quarter the Indians were out played and |Lebanon Valley pushed the ball across the line for a touchdown but failed the goal. At the end of the quarter Harnish, centre, and Hensel, right tackle were taken out because of injuries. During the second quarter the Indians rallied and scored a field goal. Lebanon Valley's line ^was very much weakened by the substitu- tions but the Indians were held for downs when the first half ended. During the third quarter the In- dians pushed the ball twice across the line, Johnny Jon, Carlisle.s full- back made a forty yard end run for a touch down. During the third quarter the Indians scored another touch- down. Captain Lehman did excel- lent punting for Lebanon Valley., his throwing of forward passes against a strong wind was a feature of the game. Hayes and Marshall were also in the game to the finish, and did fine tack- ling. The game was fast. Lebanon Valley played an open game while the Indians frequently resorted to the old line plunges. Both teams were fre- quently penalized. During the first half the Indians were defeated but the last half showed that the redskins had the greater power of endurance. The results of the game were not what we should like to have seen. Our team played an excellent game, circumstances considered. We should like to have a winning team and all of our defeats are exceptionally disappointing to us, the student body, for we feel that our team is doing the very best it can, when those high- est in authority, who should encour- age athletics, are opposing them with and main.

Many are the problems which are confronting the American people to- day. Great questions are assuming: greater mangnitude in politics, in religion, and in every phase of life. Thousands of young men and women are in the colleges of ouriand, train- ing for leadership to help to make the existing conditions better. And to whum can the world look with greater hope and expectation than to the col- lege trained man or woman ? It is the college graduate who is expected to be able to meet problem after problem, bringing his solutions with him. On him in a few short ytars will the people place the great responsibility of public trust. To him will the people look for judgment, tact and management. In a few days the vcters of our country will be going to the polls to cast their votes for their choice of candidates to rule the states, and to represent them in the national Legis- lature. Many are the issues of the present campaign which draw the at- tention of the intelligent voter. None among them are of greater importance than the great evil of the liquor tiaffic. The solving of this problem has been of the utmost importance for a num- ber of years, but the correct solution is apparently yet to be found. At- tempts are being made which are part- ly successful, but still remain too weak to be effective in the national campaign. Reforms were wrought in various foreign countries by the uprising of the students of the colleges and uni- versities. In like manner the opposi- tion to the rum traffic is being brought before the American college students, not only thnugh the national party, but through the effective work and or- ganization of the Collegiate Irohibi- tion Leagues. Their purpose is to ac- quaint college men more fully with the real conditions, and tnrough their work, to furnish to the public the knowledge of what harm the saloon is dosing to the American youth today. They attempt through their organiza- tions to make the public see more clearly the vice, the murder, the misery and the poverty which the presence of the saloon necessitates. An effective way of doing this is in the annual State Oratorial Con- tests between representatives of the Collegiate Prohibition Leagues throughout the State. Each contest- ant chooses some phase of the liquor problem as the subject of his oration. These orations, for the best of which, a prize of fifty dollars is given, are delivered at a pubile entertainment at some college in the state We are glad to say that the representative from Lebanon Valley succeeded in winning fisrt prize in last year's con- test, which was the first in which we were represented. Lebanon Valley will also entertain the State Orator- ical contest and Convention of Col- legiate Prohibition Leagues next April. This is a chpnee for every college in Pennsylvania to show the strength of its department of public speaking, and also to present to the people greater light on the subject which should be extremely important to them. Col- lege men need the information as well as the regular citizens, and this is a splendid way to show the strength and power of the vast student body of our state and the United States. Let every College in Pennsylvania take interest in the work of the Collegiate Prohibi- tion League, and by so doing, assist in strengthening both Church and State. With the success with which these leagues have been meeting, it is be- coming more and more apparent that the solution of the liquor problem is one which is dependent largely on the College students. With the increase of their knowledge of the existing evils of this great curse their respon- sibility for its defeat also increases. It is, therefore, the duty of every student to exert the greatest possible influence to free our nation from the vilest and most destructive curse which has ever come upon the Amer- ican people. Tug of War About a week ago, the sophomore and freshmen classes pulled the rope on the athletic field. The perform- ance was not as exciting and interest- ing as is usual on those occasions. The halves were five minutes in length. The sophomores scored the first point and had practically won the second when the pistol closing the first half was fired. But it was quite evident at this time which of the two was sustaining its strength. For some reason the sophomores were completely exhausted and having no men to put in as substitutes, they had to open up the second half with a b dy of disabled men. This half the freshman consequent- ly walked away with the sophomores- One man after the other dropped out of the ranks of the latter and finally they were pulling with seven men against ten. Judging from the standard of such contests, it was entirely fair and the freshmen justly won their hard earned victory. The score at the finish was 7—1. One thing alone served to cast dis- repute on the event of the day. The freshman having conquered and also disabled the sophomores, were not content until they had mobbed the lattar as they hobbled home from their feed in the evening. "This was the most unkindest cut of all." In civil- ized warfare in which both opponents are intelligent and rational beings, it is customary to reopect the wounded and vanquished.

She presented her subject in a very earnest manner, emphasizing strongly that the college girl has innumerable opportunities and that God demands of her, her best service. The girls manifested a deep interest and readily took part in the general discussion. Y. M. C. A. F. R. Kennedy led the meeting on Sunday afternoon. His subject was "Higher Experiences." In his talk the speaker brought out the need for such experiences in our daily life. If we wish to grow in grace we must enjoy those moments of com- munion with the creator. Prayer is a geat factor in our life. Christ and Paul had need of prayer. Three great char- acters in christaian history have given us the secret of their power. Christ prayed. He had to meet his des- ciples in the upper chamber, jpart from the crowd, in Order to gain greater spiritual power. Paul was a man of prayer. Thus you see if these men had to experience the higher things of life, it wo'ild seem neces- sary for the College Students to strive after the 'higher Experiences" also. Mathematical Round Table The second monthly meeting cf the mathematical Round Table was held on Wednesday evening in Professor Lehman's recitation room. The at- tendance was goodjand the program in- tensely interesting. R. B. Saylor read a carefully pre" pared paper on the metric system. A. 0. Kauff man demonstrated clearly var- ious methods for solving second degree equations. Both gentleman had their material well in hand and presented it in a pleasing way. A lively dis- cussion followed. Hollow-een Party The Philokosmian Literary Society gave their annual Hallow-een party on Monday evening. The guests as- sembled in the assembly room of ihe Library from which place they were ushered by two masked men to the. Kreider house opposite the old mill south of town. The house had been appropriately decorated with fodder, cabbage, pumpkins, leaves and all those things which tended to give the true old Hallow-een atmosphere to the place, to say no hing of apples, cider and pumpkins pies, the kind that mother used to make. Several old fashioned sports such as diving for apples, fortune telling etc, furnished amusements for all while a pianola enlivened the occasion with music. After enjoying themselves for several hours the guests departed well pleased with the evening's enter- tainment Have Your Printing Done by TheJournal PublishingCo. ANNVILLE, PA.

Annville, Pa., Tuesday, November 8, 1910 No. 7 Freshmen Banquet SOPHS LOOK ON WHILE "FRESH- IES" DEPART FOR PLACE OF FESTIVITY The class of 1914 of Lebanon Valley College held iis first great celebration in the form of a banquet at the Metropolitan Hotel, Harrisbug, on Wednesday evening Nov. 2 with every- one of its thiry four members present, while the Sophs were chagrined at their inabibliy to break np the banquet or even to keep some of the ' ' Freshies" away. Miss Ella Brightbill ssas the chaperon of the party. The Sophs were wise, and it was only after a great deal of manoevering that the whole class reached Harris- burg and were safely housed at the ''Met." The hanquet had long been arranged for and it was hara to keep thirty- four tongues quiet; as a result the Sophs got information of the affair and they determined to prevent some of the Freshmen from attending. When Tuesday evening came and night had fallen, the "Freshies" suddenly disappeared. Some went to Palmyra and Hershey. from whence they were to go to Hanieburg on the following morning The Sophs shadowed them but failed to cap- ture anyone. Next morning the Sophs arrived at Lebanon to I old up any "Freshies" that might be found in the city and eight strong, located three of them at one of the city's hotels. The Freshmen called on the renowned Lebanon police to escort them to the P. & R. station and see them safely off. The Sophs boarded the same train and at Annville received another reinforcement but at Palmyra they gave up their plans and left the train. The remaining Freshmen were (Continued.

Ministerial Association FIELD SECRETARY OF COLLEGE MAKES SPLENDID ADDRESS The regular semi-monthly meet- ing of the College Ministerial Associ- ation was held last Wednesday even- ing at the home of W. C. Shoop, '11, on College Avenue. A large num- ber of members attended and enjoyed one of the best meetings of the year. After the regular business was trans- acted, Rev. D. E. Long, Field Secre- tary of the College made a splendid address and conducted a conference on "The Present Ministry." He said in part, "Preparation for the Ministry should be made along three distinct lines, spiritually, physically, and intellectually. The ministers of our church should be trained in our own colleges and seminary, for men with such a training are given the preference. In service the minister must be extremely practical ; the rer- mons, clear, plain and brief. Socially and spiritually the minister's life must be unselfishly lived for others." The next meeting will be held Nov. 17, at the home of Charles White, '12, on Maple strreet. "In England," says Dr. A. H. Fairchild of Missouri University, "ona student in five takesjpart in some form of athletics, while in America, statis- tics show only one in fifty taking part in active college sports." Touches PRESIDENT KEISTER POINTS OU f COLLEGE IDEALS College life has been called ideal. It flourishes in a little world of its own with all the conditions for ex- cellence of character and scholarship, the best teachers and also best stu- dents who are interested and absorbed by their work, the great themes of thought that belong to the higher levels of life, and unknown for bidding each one to prepare for it. Whv should not college life be ideal? Ideal in its aims, in its con- ditions, in its products? Its proper product is personality of the best type. Scholarship shines in personality but it is secondary. The man is more than the student for the student becomes the man. The man is the greater and must be scholarly and moral and social and religious, in order to be his best. Personality shows in little acts like laughter, be it coarse or refined, open or restrained. It shows in our table manners,- by has'e or appropriate delib- eration. It is said the American peo- ple are a race of train-catchers. But the student should rise above his race and be duly deliberate at the din- ing hall. Life is made up of little things even in the ideal world of the college. Personality is marred by dog- ears of carelessness which shows more plainly where personality is the pro- per product of the forces there active. Shall we lose sight of these little things, these touches that tell of the man, his scholarship, his essential re- finement, his ideal nature responding rightly to ideal conditions? "The mind has a thousand eyes, And the heart but one; Yet the light of a whole life dies When its love is gone."

Editorial A student body is a most unique and peculiar mass of persons and must be treated and governed according to the standard of principles of student- life in general as exemplified in the particular nation in which it exists. As we recognize certain peculiar traits that are nalive to country-folk, city-folk or any class of persons who have their own peculiar environments and are isolated to a certain degree from other classes, so must we admit that in the more particular sense such conditions of etiquette, law and de- sires do also necessarily present them- selves. In words that will suit our purpose better, a student who has any sense whatever of his powers and pur- poses cannot be expected to ect as an archbishop or a pope would under the same circumstances. And yet, if he Joes not, immediately upon donning his verdancy, manifest some remark- able extend of inherent piety and saintliness, he is branded as a rebel and a degenerate fool. If we compare conditions at home and at college we will not need to use ;much brain matter to discriminate the jfference. Every student loves the warmth and good cheer of his home fire-sjde, and the affectionate ties form- ed there are only bound closer about his own heart when he feels the first wild and romantic impulses of college-life. Gradually he sees life from another piont of view. His de- sires begin to change. The monotony of his life seeks digression and amuse- ment which must necessarily be new. If nothing presents itself f or his entertainment, he immediately creates something. Thus, he begins to think and act for himself and should we down him at; once, if he sometimes goes wrong? At college the man first learns that he is expected to be a leader among men. Now it is that he is aware that college stujents ard college professors are not gods. The psychological disturbances that then sway him back and forth need not be recounted here. We have all ex- perienced them. Suffice it to say that the student is no morn an ape but a self-thinking, self-willed and par- tially intelligent creature. That^'was just the aim in bringing him within the classic halls of wisdom. Now since a man has once reached such a degree of enlightenment what else are we to suppose than as a necessary concomitant he will sometimes clash with authority. But in clashing we must remember that there are two sides. We have thought of but one here. Authority may also have evolutionary experiences and when such is the case it is best for both student-body and authority to clearly understand each ether. Each should welcome reason. Deliberation nourishes kidnness ; obstinacy creates disgust and treason. Whatever may be the grievances of authority or student-body at Lebanon Valley, let neither act stubbornly and imagine itself the only righteous one in existence. There are others. On Tuesday evening, Mr. Earle A. Spessard, '11, addressed the student body at Albright College on the sub- ject of Wcrk among Foreigners. The Y. M. C. A. of that institution contemplates doing work similar to that done by our association, and Mr. Spessard outlined the nature and emphasized the importance of the work. Freshmen Banquet (Continued from page 1) picked up at various stations along the line. At Harrisburg they were met by Detective White and Ziel of the Harrisburg police who had been summoned as an escouit by an advance telegram from Reporter Harnish. During the afternoon the Freshman dispersed throughout the city. The Sophs were on the job and captured Lyter and Ulrich on the Mulberry Street Bridge. When Ulrich promis- ed that he would not attend the Iian- puet he was released. Lyter was taken to a house at Progress. When the Freshmen appeared on the scene, the Sophs decided to remove their captive to Hummelstown. Upon arriving there the car-crew refused to let them remove him from the car and he returned to Harrisburg a 8 :00 in time for the banquet. Meanwhile the "Freshies" had recaptured Ulrich and compelled him to goback with them; every precaution was taken to prevent any troouble. The banqueting room was delight- fully decoratd in granite and brown, the class colors. Fiom8:0i) to 12:^0 the banquet was on. A splendid menu was served. At the call of the toastmaster, Paul Hummel, toasts were given: "1914," Walter Biever ; "Our Girls," Lester A.

ROLL UP LARGE SCORE OF 62-0 IN UNINTERESTING GAME Last Friday Lebanon Valley football team was defeated by the highest score of the year. The quarters were twelve minutes, but by mutual consent the final quarter was cut to eight minutes. The first half ended with the score 35—0, while the third quarter was almost - as disastrous as the first two. The forward pass and punting were responsible for many gains. Flanigan and McGuire made goods gains for the " Mountaineers. " In the final quarter our team played good football, holding Mt. St. Mary's for downs. Hayes and Forrest made many fine tackles, while Captain Lehman's punting gave us good gains. Biever frequently broke through the opponent's line, which resulted in tackling the man carrying the ball. Charlton did good work considering his recent injury. The combination was strong against us, playing on a strange field, and having to stand for some lime in the cold wind before the game. The game was marked by much holding by the "Mountaineers. " This, however, is no excuse, for we were outplayed, outwinded and outweighed, and they deserve credit for their victory. A flurry of snow interfered slightly during the last quarter. Considering the previous training of our boys, they did good work and had the fight- ing spirit to the end. The lineup : L. V.

The new student finds himself in a world altogether different from his home surroundings. He makes many new friends, comes into different social and spiritual atmospheres, and almost begins life anew. In this new position, the Christian Association takes ample care of his spiritual welfare, trying to better him by his presence and participation in the meetings. But there is another side which needs more development than will be recieved through the daily contact with the professors and fellow- students. This is along the line of Literary Societies. The student of every class should receive much inform- ation of value in the class-room, but what will be the ultimate profit if all ia retainded and no attempt is made to help one's fellow 7 Nowhere is greater freedom acquired than in the Literary Society. Nor should interest lag in this direction, for the training received in the society hall is invaluable for the experiences of after life. We would not attempt to give advice on choosing which society to join. That is not our buisness, as each one must decide for himself. It is, however, essential to success in college that each student have a society to call his very own, which he can love, honor and uplift in compensation for the good he receives therefrom. Everybody will agree we learn from each other. Then every meeting we miss we lose something of value. The highest possible attendance should be demanded, from the view point of interest, encouragement to the per- formers, and the good of the society. Above all, let every student be strong and make a stand for some Literary Society. Much is being said in reference to the ideal and the method of obtaining it. Nearly everybody has his own method of reaching the ideal which is uppermost in his mind. However, very often this method is little, if any, more than a theory. Too often we do not reckon the cost of our enterprise. We forget to take facts and existing conditions into r our account. Without these our theory will never become practice, our ideal will never become real. Every phase of our theory must be thoroughly weighed and brought upon a plain business basis before it can stand the most practical tests ; likewise our ideals. In aspiring toward this ideal let each one weigh his plan3 carefulh and count the coat accurately before he acts. Then will character be broadened, and personality strengthened; then indeed will the student "rise above his race" and obtain the long-sought goal. Educational Day Sunday, November 20th, will be Educational day at St. Paul's U. B. Church, West Lebanon, of which Mark G. Holtzman is pastor. The Sunday School will rally to this interest at 9:30 o'clock, a. m., and at 10:30 President Lawrence Keister will preach. At 2 p. m. there will be a platform service, to be addressed bv W. Albert Brunner, '11, Victor D. Mulhollen, '13, and Rev. W. H. Peiffer The evening service will be addressed by Professors E. M. Bals- baugh, '01, and Ray G. Light, '06, who are graduates of the college. Ihe male quartet of the church will sing. Y. M. C. A. A large number of fellows turned out to Y. M. C. A. on Sunday and enjoyed one of the best meetings of the year. Guy Wingerd, '12, the leader, discussed "Imitators of Christ," using as a lesson the second chapter of II Timothy. He said in part "True Imitators of Christ are those who mould their characters after Him, and who are slow to judge the character of others. Christ wants us to recognize Him and do our utmost in bringing the world to Him. We can take part in imitating Christ by living as he did, and inducing others to do their part in bringing abont the coming kingdom. A lively discussion followed in which Messrs. Brunnner, Koontz, L. Spessard, and Leibold participated. Rev. H. B . Spayd, the c allege pastor was present and made the closing prayer. First Senior Oratory Recital Mr. J. W. Ischy was the first member of the senior class in oratory to give his recital. Last Thursday evening he read cuttings from "Seven Oaks" in a way alike creditable to himself and his department. He was ably assisted by Misses McCurdy, Snyder, and Clauser, who rendered a number of short readings. A fine audience was present, which goes to show the public interest in the Oratory department. The next Senior recital will be given some time in February. Y. W. C. A. The meeting on [Sunday afternoon coducted by Miss Verda Snyder, was one of the most interesting held this year. Ihe topic for discussion was ' ' My favorite passage of Scripture, and why I like it." The leader pointed out the difficulties of making a selec- tion among so many beautiful pas- sages. She quoted several that appealed to her very strikingly and asked l^e girls to do the same. Nearly everybody responded with a readiness that gave life and spirit to the meeting.

A., the Devotional Committee has arranged a series of meetings in which a book is read and discussed. The first of these meetings, held on Sunday afternoon, proved to ba very interesting. Edith M. Lehman lead the meeting. She read one of Ralph Connor's books, "Give" which is taken from "The Sky Pilot." The scene is laid in the west in the foothill country of the Rocky Mountains. The theme of the story is the "Why of Human Pain." This subject will be taken up as the topic for the next meeting to be lead by Miss Kilmer, after Thanksgiving. We would urge all the girls to attend these meetings. Sundown A late lark twitters from the quiet skies And from the west, Where the sun, his day's work ended Lingers as in content.

The NEWS extends to all subscribers, its best wishes for a happy Thanks- giving Season. It seems from the general tenor fit conversation which is heard from time to time that the real signifi- cance of Thanksgiving has escaped very many people in these hurry scurry days materialism. To some it means cessation of labor, a holiday, turkey and all those delicacies, which go with such feasts ; to others a glimpse of home and friends, to still others, only a dav on which, with a sort of Pharisaical pride, to return thanks for blessings received. No one should find fault with any one of these, but does it notnarrow to the last limits that feel- ing of joy the Master of Life would have all experience? Would it not be far better in these times of festivities to cast our eyes about us and see if wo can not find some one to whom we can bring our joy? To college students Thankgiving day should be a holiday, a feasting, a returning of thanks, and with these an inspiration to gladden the lives of others. Ever since the destructive fire of 1904, the problem of governing'the stu- dent body at Lebanon Valley has been to a greater or lesser extent occupying the minds of the college authorities. The occupancy of the new dormitories introduced a new regime in student life. Various unforseen conditions presented themselves which necessi- tated a change in the governing policy. To the occupants of the men's dormi- tories, proctors were disliked and undesired. Then came the problem of a substi- tute. A number of students, after much thought, presented a set of rales which they themselves wished to follow and enforce, thus forming the basis of the system of student government at Lebanon Valley College. However, in time, cases arose to which the estalbished regulations were inap- plicable. Several years passed before an open break occured, but when it did come, the result was that a new Senior-Junior Council was elected, putting the system of government on the best basis it had yet attained. Probably the greatest success achieved by the Council last mentioned was the successful directing of inter- class contests. But, the council was legislative rather than executive, and also found problems with which it was apparently unable to cope. This led to the final dissolution of the council several weeks, ago, with no positive form of government for the student body. Again comes the problem with increased force, ' ' How shall ^ur student body be governed?" Every good form of government is to some extent a product of the process of evolution. As student self government has taken advanced strides in the last few years, with each result mure satisfactory than its predecessor, we feel confident: that our present situation is only a marker in the evolutionary develop- ment. The fact that both college and preparatoryjstudents have been dealt with by the same governing body in the past, is largely at the bottom of the desire for a change. What the Council also needs is execuive authority combined with the legislative. The late council was satisfactory as far as it had authority but its powers were not backed by binding qualities. Present indications point to an acceptable solution of the problem in the near future. Within the past wee k committees from the two upper classes have been appointed to suggest a new form of government, purposing to meet the present need and at the same time, voice the demands and desires of the students as nearly as possible. These propositions are to be handed to the Faculty Committee for ratification. It is to the interests of all parties concerned that the greatest co-operation should exist [between faculty, com- mittees and student body. With such prospects we look forward to great success in our governing policy, in the hope and belief that it',will be the best step toward the goal which we are anticipating.

Many such facts of interests which have been in a sense forgotten will when brought to our minds, we hope, endear old L. V. C. to us, and stimulate us to greater efforts for her sake.

Clio-Kalo Joint Session The Clionian and the Kalozetean literary societies enjoyed a pleasant evening on Friday, Nov. 18, 1910 in a joint session of the two societies. A splendid program was rendered to an appreciative audience of more than a hundred people. The program was rendered as follows : Piano duett, Sara and Paul Strickler ; President's address, W. 0.

M. C. A. The meeting on Sunday afternoon was led by James Shively. His sub- ject was "The Religions of Service," taken from Romans 12 The fol- lowing is a brief of his remarks. More than nineteen centuries ago a young man rose up in a Jewish synagogue in Palestine and defined his mission in life.. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath annointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those that are bruised. His biographers tell us that he went about doing good, feeding the hungry, clothing [the naked, because of the burden of their past wrong-doing. When he died he told his disciples: As the Father hath sent me into the world, so send I you, and he bade them receive his" spirit of faith and love and carry it out in generous service. We are often too engrossed in ou r ambitions, dominated by our egotism and selfishness^that we forget the fellow next to us. We do not greet him with a pleasant smile, and too often when a man is already down we trample upon him rather than extend him a helping hand and lead him back to Christ. Though in our study of Philosophy and Theology we are apt to fall into doubt, yet the study of the life and works of Jesus make us determine that this man, was the life we want to imi- tate, that He holds the secret to a happy and useful living. We do not reverence Jesus by singing hymns to him, by assigning him an exalted place in the universe, but by manifestin in our own lives the same spirit which he manifested in His, by serving our generation with unselfish devotion and heroism. 1 ' The tone of the meeting was excell- ent. Several speakers followed Mr. Shively with suitable remarks. About twenty-five men were out. Let every fell ow bring another with him the next time.

FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY EXERCISES OF THE CLIONIAN LITE RARY SOCIETY Program Very Successfully Carried Out — Many Alumni and Friends Attend — Orations Given in Full Thanksgiving Day was a red letter day in Clio circles, as it was the occasion of the Fortieth Anniversary of their society. The usual Anniversary exercisus were rendered very pleasinglv in the College Chapel at eight o'clock. The chapel was tastefully decorated for the occasion with bunting in the Socitey colors, and with many beautiful palms. Guests began to arrive early, many coming in time for the College Thanksgiving Dinner. By the time the exercises began, the Chapel was nearly filled with alumni, students and friends of Clio. To the strains of music rendered by Keim's orchestra, secured for the occasion, the speakers appeared on the stage. Every address showed thorough preparation and care- ful training. The participants held the close attenton of the large audience from start to finish of the program. At the conclusion of the literary exercises, a reception was held in the Ladies' Parlors. The parlors were also very tastefully decorated in the Society colors, and were very pretty indeed. Quite a large number of guests'attended the reception, which eqjaled any ever given by the Society. Delightful refreshments were served. Eveybody agreed that the occasion was extremely successful, and entertaining.

Ladies and Gentlemen : We have gathered together this evening to observe another anniversary of tha Clionian Literary Society. We always look forward to these exercises because they signify the completion of one more year's work and the entering upon another. Year after year, our society offers its privileges to the young women who leave their homes and come among us to pursue a prescribed course of study. The choosing of a course is naturally their first concern, but no sooner have they entered upon their studies than they are asked to identify themselves with the various student organizations that exist in a college. The environ- ment in which they find themselves is very different from that to which they have been rccustomed. To harmonize their interests and to come into a vital relation with the college life is of far reaching importance to the student. The college organizations aid the young men and women to adjust them- selves to their new surroundigs and make them feel that they are a part of the college life. These may be divided into four classes, the athletic, the social, the literarv and the religious, forming four di tinct supplementary agencies, each with a purpose of its own. These agencies differ somewhat in importance and do not appeal alike to the individual student. There is so much to claim the attention of the student that it becomes a physical impossibility to engage actively in all of the different organizations, yet to withhold from participating to some extent in these activities will be detri- mental to the best interests of the student, and a distinct loss to the organization and to the college to which they sustain a very close relation. Unfortunatelyit happens occasionally I COLLEGE NEWS that a student will allow his work in the supplementary agencies to interfere with that in his curriculum becoming so much engrossed in the former as to neglect the latter. The student should always be brought to realize that his first duty is to his course, but that he should share interest; and labor in both. I think you will agree with me that the literaiy society occupies a most important position among tli^se supple- mentary agencies. Compared with the value of many organizations it towers far above them. It is to be greatly regretted that in many places there is a diminution of interest in the literary society. Students preparing to sub- stitute a club which is purely social or one requiring less work and mental effort. The pre-eminent position of tne lit- erary sociteties in our own college should be a source of much gratification to every one present. For not only is the literary society of great help and benefit to the student while at school, butav3ry important part of its work is the preparation whic 1 ! it gives for taking part in the many organiza- tions of which students are asked to become members after leaving college. Ihis is the day for organized effort. In no other way can as much be accomplished. College graduates are expected to be the leaders in the or- ganizations which are he'ping to solve the many intricate problems of our complex civilizf tion. The character of these organizations depends upon the object to be accomplished, civic, political, social and religious. College graduates owe it to the community in which they live ta take an active part ill raising the moral tone and the standaid of living, and in every way possible to bring about a better con- dition of affairs. The literary society affords a train- ing to enable its members if they have been faithful in the performance of their duties, to enter into the life of the or- ganizations referred to, to know the methods of organizing, to preside, to see that the work is conducted in a proper and oiderly way, to work with others, to speak extemporaneously, to prepare a statement carefully and to present it in a clear, concise and forci- ble way. These thing3, we as members of the Clionian L'terary Society are striving to attain. This year has been a most pleasant year in our society. Our programmes are very interesting and every girl enjoys helping to make them so. We delight in going into our society hall, because it is the place we govern. At th^t place, all class pre- judices are laid aside. We meet there with one common aim and interest. Our efforts are united and the result must be success. A result which has attended us so far this fall, in that we have been able to pay the entire debt of our hall. We are glad for your presence. We hope that to-night's program will be a source of interest and pleasure to you. In behalf of the society, I welcome you to these the fortieth anniversary exercises of the Clionian Literary Society. The Just Judge. It was in the county court rcoms of one of our large Western cities one night that a boy was accused of laiceny. The hour was late, the calendar was long, and the Judge was sitting overtime. Weary of the weary work, the men were forcing the mach- inery of the [law to grind out at full speed the dull routine of Justice. All sorts of cases go before this court and the Judge had long since tired of its monotonous round. This case of petty larceny was plain and it could be disposed of in short crier. The sleepy policeman brought forth his witness and the case was sworn out. There was scarcely any denial of the charge and the Judge ordered that what the law prescribed for such cases should be done. That was all. In the same breath the next case was called when something happened, something a little out of the ordinary. A cry, the shriek of a broken hearted woman was heard. There was nothing so unusual in that, however. In ou r public court rooms, disturbances of this kind are frequent. They are all dealt with in the same manner, and again the bailiff arose to do his duty. But the Judge on the bench was Ben. B. Lindsey, the famous Judge of the Juvenile court of Denver. This incident happened, however, before he was famous. There was no Juvenile court then. Lindsey was only a young struggling lawyer and politician who had been but recently appointed to the Judgeship. His experiences in politics, however, had been long enough to teach him the corruptness, the injustice of the system and it made him sick at heart. That is, perhaps, why he heard that heart rending cry from thd rear of the room. One sad heart most easily recognizes another. This fact, undoubtedly caused the judge to pause in his rapid work of administering Justice and he paused to uphold the woman. "I had noticed her before." the Judge said, "an J I thought she looked like a cave dweller. I didn't connect her with the case in question. I didn't think of her in any human relationship whatsoever. For that matter, I hadn't considered the larceny case in any human way until that mother's cry startled me into humanity. It was an awful cry, a terrible sight and I was stunned. I looked at the prisoner before me again and this time I saw a boy, an Italian boy. Not a thief, not a lose criminal, only a bad boy. I called him back and had the woman brought before me and talked with them as mother and son. I learned that this boy had a home, The thought made me shudder. I had almost sent him among criminals when he had a home and a mother to go to. And that was the Law! I stopped the machinery of Justice to pull that boy out of its grinders." But -he was guilty and what was to be done with him. That was the great question that rang in the Judge's ear unceasingly. He came to a great new and ancient discovery that what we are after to- day are men, and men are but boys grown up. But how was the problem to be solved? The way in which he did solve it can be detected in his own words. "The great movements for the betterment of our children are simply typical of the noblest spirit of his age, that Christ-like spirit of un- selfish love, of hope, and of joy." The old process of punishing and guiding the child is now completely changed. No wiser method could be found for all our departments of justice. "Instead of coming to destroy, we come to rescue; instead of coming to punish we come to upl'ft; instead cf coming to hate, we come to love." That the man has this deep sig- nificance is shown by the gradual, apparently accidental way in which he developed his "methods" and his court. He couldn't think them out. But he COLLEGE'N E~ W S MISS NELLIE SELTZER MISS EDNA YARKERS had a heart, and when the cave dweller cry reached it, he found himself. From that time on, Lindsey put his heart into his business. He didn't know what probation was when he decided to take care of that Italian boy. The idea of the Juvenile court had not yet dawned upon him. It took "cases" to set him thinking, and many came. One day he noticed a burglary on the calendar. Looking around for the criminals, the Judge saw three bright American boys. Upon inquiring he learned that they had been caught robbing a pigeon loft. There was no doubt about the crime, the boys would be sent to the reformatory, of course. The ruling officer however, shook his head, ana why? He was recalling just then, the time when he as a boy, went robbing a pigeonloft, that very same one that these boys had robbed, as further investigation re- vealed. The Judge had not actually committed burglary, although he would have, if his "nerve" had not failed him. He got "scared" at the very last minute a nd ran away. But now the law expected him, a Judge, to send to prison these boys who were no worse than he. To the Judge's eyes they were even better becauee they had the "sand" he 'ack^d. But what was to be done with the offenders? Lindsey says he learned "out of the mouths of babes". He took those Prisoners into a room and talked with them. Ihat was the first of many confer°nces which have been the means of saving more than one boy from a criminal's end. Many people regarded these talks with superstition. The police even started a story that he was a hypnotist for he gets such wonderful results. He gets the entire confidence and respect of the boys. They not only honor but also love him. Viewing the probation system in the light of all it has accomplished, we must say that friendship is the key. The Judge talks to the boys as they talk to each other. He invites them to his home, he takes long walks with them, he studies, carefully handles, and helps them. Is it any wonder that he gains their confidence? Is it so marvellous that he can impress on their young minds the sin and wrong in either surprising or "snitching" as they call tattling? He makes them feel that it is only the weak who yield. And what child will not respond when its honor, its strength, is appealed to? Lindsey's deep understanding of a boy's nature can possibly be attributed to the circumstances surrounding his own youth. There he felt the cold loneliness of a life void of friendship. He was a poor boy who had to earn his own living. Hard work was required and he was often worn out and no- body appreciated it. He was only doing his duty and it nearly killed him. He sank under his burden to the very verge of despair. There he learned the value of a kind word of sympathy and good cheer and its lesson is serving him well through life. And what is the result? We all know how much good the Juvenile ^ouit has been doirg in Denver; we know, too, how many dark crimes, how many unworthy officers and how many disobey ed laws and grafts wete exposed by the Judge in nider to save the child. He forced the illegal wine houser, which had been meeting places for boy a and gills, to be closed. Saloon-keepers no longer dar>?d to sell liquor and tobacco to minors because of the sure punishment that would followed. Factories were in- spected until childlabcr laws were strictly enforced. All this and more the Judge accomplished. Naturally enougn, he was cut on the street by other officials, the objects of many of his inspections and decis- ions. He was hissed, his own political party even turned against him because he would notgive up his court. Lindsey was firm and in the struggle which is still going on, he has thus far come out victorious. A decided test of Judge L'ndsey's influence came in 1904. He knew that he would have to make the election if he wanted his work to go on. His own political party offered him no support. He had exposed its crimes. The business men of the town would not hear him, he had lessened their profits. In despair he turned to his only real friends, the boys. He had been the important factor in their lives and they were eager to do something for him. On the day of the election they poured into the streets, marched up and down, yelling for Lindsey. The city resounded with their song of "Who, which, when? Wish we were men so that we could vote for our little Ben." All day long, everywhere, the boys kept at it. And the result was success, a decided success for their Judge. Now may we ask whether friendship is paying in the life of Judge Lindsey? Was it worth while for him to lay aside "big" cases in which much more was concerned in order to establish and preside over the Juvenile Court? Will it mean anything in the future ysars of our country that the thoughts, the ambitions of these erring children have been directed into paths cf industry, honor, and duty? Paul Thiean says that Lindsey is the first citizen of Colorado and that COLLEGE NEWS his work, not the mines, mills, rail- roads, and farms, but Judge Lindsey's work is the greatest thing the state has yet produced. And looking at it from the standpoint of that poor lcnely boy who was one day sitting in the court-room watching the judge deal out justice, when he suddenly rushed up, kissed the judge and with tears in his eyes, said "I love you," looking at it from his standpoint, I say, we must agree that it is the greatest thing Colorado has yet produced. After The War. It is hardly possible to estimate the great joy and thanksgiving of the North when Lee's surrender was pro- claimed. The news, which had been looked for so long, was receive^ with shouts of welcome. The hearts of the peoDle bubbled with delight at the thought that they would soon see their loved ones who had gone forth to fight for their country's welfare. Some, however, were sad because of the fact that a few near and dear to them would never return, yet with the bitter thought came a deep prayer of thank- fulness that now finally it was over. There would be no more battles, no more prisons, no more lists of dead and wounded. The war was over, the cause was won. Signs of gladness were seen everywhere; houses were decorated and the American flag was flung to the breeze. Only too soon their joy was turned to grief. On the eve of April four- teenth, 1865, the war-heated blood of the nation was frozen with sudden hor- ror at a deed which then had ro parallel in American history. As on the wings of lightning came the news "the President is shot"— "is dying" "is dead." Men scarcely knew how to credit this tale. When the truth was really known all bowed their heads and wept. Common grief took uncommon garb. Houses changed their bright decoraticns for those of more sombre hue. The American flag hung pensively at half mast ; portraitures of the loved dead were found on all. And dreary as the day was, the patiiots' hearts were still drearier. It was if as chaos and dread night had come again. Great mobs gathered everywhere, frantic with fear that some dread conspiracy would redden the North with innocent blood and hand over the government to treason and traitors. In New York the mob as uncontroll- able. General Butler from the balcony of the Exchange Building tried to pacify the seething crowd, but all in vain. From the mob there rose aery "the WorlJ," "the office of the Worlo," and the mass of crazed men began to moveas one man to that office. Destruction of property, loss of life, violence andanarchy, were in that movement. Apparently no human power could fheck its progress But a man stepped out on the balcony and held his arm aloft. His commanding atti- tude arrested universal attention. Per- haps he was going to give them news, ihey waited. But while they listened the voice, — it was the voice of General Garfield, —only said: "Fellow citizens: Clouds and dark- ness are around about Him : His pa- villion is dark waters and thick clouds of the skies: Justice and Judgement are established of His throne: Mercy and truth shall go before His face: Fellow citizens: God reigns and the government at Washington still lives. ' ' The tide of popular fury was stayed. The impossible had been accomplished. Rage was turned to grief. On the day of Lincoln's burial bells were tolled throughout the land, minute guns were fired, business was suspended, and the thoughtful betook themselves to" prayer. Flowers beautified the life- less remains, dirges were sung, the people's great heart broke out into sobs and sighing. The train of mourn- ers who followed his cortege extended many hundred miles in length. It was a procession of mourners bewailing him who had so successfully guided the nation through the agony of a Civil War and who had been thus prematurely lost. Yes, we may say prematurely, for if Lincoln, "with Charity for all and malice toward none," had lived, there would have been no bitter feeling between the North and South and race prejudice could never have existed. One of Lincoln's most cherished desires was to see the disbandment of the army, but the cruel hand of the assassin prevented it. Nine months after his death eight hundred thousand soldiers had been returned to their homes. From the beginning to the end of the disbandment the great Napoleonic War Rule— time is every- thing -was vigorously enforced. But what followed was more won- derful ! As soon as the order for dis- bandment had gone forth the North had begun to ask itself what they were going to do with the million men about to flood the country. It recalled that after the Napoleonic Wars France was alive with beggars and cripples, and that the end of the Thirty Years' War had filled Germany with marauding muskateers. Several states asked the war department for troops to keep the disbanded soldiers in order. Yet by November eight hundred thousand soldiers had been disbanded, and noth- ing had happened. They seemed to have disappeared : What had become of them? 'I he soldiers of 1865 had gone to work. They did not ask to be coddled They realized the sincerity of the enthusiasm and helpfulness which met them on every hand. For the sake of the ones whom they lovod, these men, in whom love of danger and adventure had become a strong passion, hung up their arms and cheerfully began to earn their daily bread. But what became of the Southern soldiers while the Union army was dis- banding? They too turned their weary footsteps homeward, if one may call it home. The Confederate soldier had left his beautiful and prospeious home at the outbreak of the war, filled with hope of victory. At the end of the war, half-hearted, half-starved and exhausted by wounds, he returned, in a ragged and dirty uniform, to find his home in ashes, his family scattered, his labor system destroyed by the emancipation of the slaves, and his money worthless. What did the confederate soldier do? Did he sit down in despair? No. He set to work immediately trusting that God who had taken away his prosperity would help him in his adversity Bv June the fields, which had been scenes of terrible slaughter in April, were green with harvest. The women with patience and heroism "that fit them always as a garment" did their share of the work. Since they had no slaves the burden of household duties fell upon them. This, however, was not done without bitterness, but the ch^erfuness that prevailed was indeed wonderful. Even to this day the Southerner cherishes the memory of that war. H. W. Grady in his speech on "The Old South and the New" expresses the sentiment of the whole South when COLLEGE NEWS MISS CARRIE LIGHT MISS LIZZIE LAU he says: "In my native town of Athens is a monument that crowns its central hill — a plain white shaft. Deep cut into its shining side is a name dear to me above the names of men —that of a brave and simple man who died in a brave and simple faith. "Not for all the glories of New England from Plynioth Ruck all the way would I exchange the heritage he left me in his soldier's death. To the foot of that shaft I shall send my child- ren's children to reverence him who en- nobled their name with his heroic blood. But speaking from the shadow of that memory, which I honor as I do nothing else on earth, I say the cause in which he suffered and for which he gave his life was adjudged by a higher and fuller wisdom than his or mine, and I am glad that the omniscient God held the balance of battle in His Almighty Hand and that slavery was banished forever from American soil, and the American Union was saved from wreck of war." Reading One of the most pleasing features of the program was the reading given by Miss Edna Yarkers who presented a cutting from "The Sign of the Cross," a synopsis of which follows: THE LOVE OF BERENICE "The scene is Rome. The time, that of Nerb. Marcus, the Perfect is beloved by Berenice, a patrician woman of great wealth and beauty and also by Poppeae, Nero's wife. But he loves Mercia, a Christian giil, whom he rescued from the persecutions of the Councellor and Licinus, employed by Nero. Dacia is a gossiping friend of Berenice. "Dacia, Cnuncellor and Licinus visit Berenice to tell her of the news of Marcus and also to taunt her about his love for Mercia. She receives the news coldly to outward appearances. Marcus arrives and the others leave. Berenice demands the news of Mercia. She professes her love for him but is rejected." Ihe reader deserves much credit for the commendable way in which she presented this interesting selection. The keen attention and interest of the audience showed in a marked degree their appreciation of the number. Julia Ward Howe In a rather small old-fashioned home on Beacon Street, half way between the public gardens, and the Back Bay lived one of America's notable women who has seen the civilzation of America form itself and has added potent ingredients to it. In the parlor of this little home have sat and talked the greatest men of America and the best of her visitors. There were times of merry-making and intercourse with scholarly men. These seem to have left in the atmosphere some indefinable flavor, like a lingering perfume which tells even the casual visitor that there has been high thinking and noble speech. Julia Ward Howe was born in eighteen hundred and nineteen in a handsome home in Bowling Green at that time the fashionable part of New York City. Her ancestors were prominent factors during the early colonial period. Her father a wealthy merchant and banker, was a man of re- spect and reserved mann rs and with a vein of true geniality and a great bene- volence of Heart. Her mother, Julia Cutler Ward, was a woman of beauty and intellect. Dpath separated her from her family at the age of twenty-eight, leaving six little children, the fourth, Julia, only five years of age. This distressing blow was great to the banker and his little flock but he was somewhat condoled by the arrival of Mrs. Ward's sister, Miss Eliza Cutler, who came to bring up the children. Many curious instances are related concerning the conspicuous colors in which she dressed the children. One day Julia is said to have come from school with one blue shoe and one green. But in spite of all, her mind was never set on fashions either in childhood or in later life. What she desired was that which was uplifting and tended toward building character. At the age of nine she studied Paley's Moral Philosophy with those twice her age. Yet, with a love for studies beyond her years, she was a child at heart. Her youth was pure, happy and strenuous, in many things privileged. Discovering early a strong love of reading and knowledge, to-gether with marks of great strength and activity of mind, proper care was taken by her worthy father to provide for her ed- ucation. He procured the best teachers in music, Germam and Italian. And later she was sent to one of the most conservative of boarding schools, where blackboards and all the appliances for forming prim young lady-hood were in vogue. Her college life was brilliant and without a stain. Her individuality was so great that she came from this institution to be the apostle of equal rights of men and women When Julia was fourteen, her father purchased a mansion on the corner of Broadway and Bond Streets. Artists as well as musicians and authors came to visit the picture gallery and accept the Ward hos- pitality, and returned the courtesy by Continued on 1st column next page COLLEGE NEWS College J^etus Issued weekly during- the College Year by the students of Lebanon Valley College EDITOR-IN-CHIEF P.

Ever since the second year in the history of man, there have been anni- versaries, at least not before that time. In our college life, we are not different from the ordinary. We have greater or lesser organizations which are near and dear to us, and next to our college no organization receives our devotion so entirely as does our several societies. It has been the great pleasure of the editorial staff of the NEWS, to devote an extra sheet to the exclusive use of each respective society at its anniversary season. We take exceeding pleasure in giving this week's publica- tion to the use of the CLIONIAN Literary Society, and extend to that organization our heartiest congratula- tions for the virtuous tenor and successful rendition of their delightful anniversary exercises. Julia Ward Howe Continued from preceding page displaying their talents. This offered a grand opportunity for Miss Julia to come in contact with the scholars of the day. So well did she perform her part on the instrument, that her friends urged her to devote her life to music. The influences of her home, father, excellent aunt and noble friends, these influences on her heart were strong and elevating. She discovered in the library the stimulation and the food of intellectual life, and arank unawares from the moral and physical aspects about her, the lesson and power of contenment and self-trust. She began to read Shake- speare and Byron and then tried her hand at poem3 and plays. These were published in various magazines and resulted in attracting attention which encouraged her to attempt greater tasks. Not long after the death of her father, Julia, who was now a very attractive young woman went to Bos- ton. There she met men like Sumner, Mann, Emerson and others of the intellectual class Among these was Dr. Samuel Howe, who had already been a noted philanthropist and re former. He was an enthusiastic democrat, a republican of republicans, whose creed was the love of humanity. He had paid particular attention to the study of the deaf and blind and was the first man in America to do anything towards lightening their darkened con- ditions. When the Greeks were in a state of starvation he pleaded elo- quently with the Americans until he received a filled vessel for their relief. The famishing people looked upon him as an ang^l from heaven. When Julia Ward met Dr. Howe, who was eigh f een years her senior, it was not strange that among many admirers he won her hand. He found in her an ardent sympathizer. As early as her wedding trip she began to make impressions which have hardened into facts of American life. When Mr. and Mrs. Howe made their extensive wed- ding trip in Europe, they took with them as a companion Horace Mann. The young bride full of her husbands projects, talked them to Mr. Mann, with the result that the Horace Masn institu- tions for the blind are among our charities. On their return to Boston, Dr. and Mrs. Howe were welcomed as the friends of men and women who gave that city its reputation as a centre of culture. Dr. Howe was given the director-ship of an institution for the blind, the young mother on account of the large garden and the conservatories of the estate, called it in half sport, "Green Peace" Into this happy home were born six children. "Green Peace" was a home where the literary mother and philan- thropic father found their greatest comfort. Mrs. Howe with her beautiful voice eitertained her children with German songs and when they desired a change, would compose both music and words. There was no end of happy times provided by the devoted mother for the children. "A party or a picnic was never complete without "mother." In spite of all these meirymakings for the li'tle tots, Mrs. Howe found ample time for study and writing, especially when thej were at their charming summer home with its old mill and waterfall, at Lawton's Valley in Newport. It was here that she wrote many of her essays and poems for various magazines. She was never seen idle. What she called rest was thought by many to be very hard work. She rested herself after a days work by reading Greek books and Plato in the original, which gave her the greatest intellectual enjoyment in the later years of her life. Dr. and Mrs. Howe were ardent workers for the anti-slavery cause. They edited an antislavery paper and were leaders with Garrison, Philips, and Sumner. Mis. Howe says it was her husband who suggested the holding of meetings in Boston for the discussion of the problem with abolitionists on one side and pro-slaverymen on the other. Mrs. Howe was a woman of brilliant and quick perceptions, and an impres- sion seemed to fix itself upon hermir.d until it bore fruit of some kind. When Dr. and Mrs. Howe were visiting Washington in eighteen hundred and sixty-one, making their way there thru a line of guarding pickets, they drove out some distance from the city withMr. and Mrs. Freeman Clark tr attend a review of the troops. The enemy interrupted the proceedings and the Boston party was hastily escorted back to the city. On the way the soldiers sang, "John Brown's Body," Mr. Clarke seeing Mrs. Howe's intense face as she listened to the martial music, said to her, "you ought to write some new words to that tune," "I will," she replied. In the gray of the next dawn she awoke to find the lines arranging themselves in her mind. She lay quite still until the last word framed itself she immediately arose and in half darkness wrote them down. The song was first sung in Libby COLLEGE NEWS prison and then the words were caught up and carried from prison to battle field. "He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat. He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgement seat," echoed until victory was sounded. These verses have a moral and patriotic elevation of feeling, expressed with poetic grace and imagination, which places them far above most of this period; and it seems that their pop- ularity will endure throughout the ages. From this time on she devoted the rest of her life as a writer, lecturer on woman suffrage and prison refurms. She gave a series of parlor lecturer to her personal friends on subjects such as, "Liberty," "Equality," "Fra- ternity," "The Best of Success," and others. These lectures were so much enjoyed that she was asked to read them in public. Mrs. Howe's third journey across the Atlantic caused her to becume intensely interested in woman Suffrage. In eighteen hundred and sixty nine she was earnestly requested to sign with others, a call for a woman's suffrage convention, which she did. "From that time forth, ' ' she said, ' ' I marched to the music of a new hope; and alj the years that have passed since then I have never had occasion to regret the departure which I made then and there." After the death of Dr. Howe she devoted herself untiringly to everything that she thought might elevate hu- manity. She lectured in all parts of the United States, also in Florence, Italy, and Athens and always proved herself the elegant, wellbred, highly educated woman. She preached- in many American pulpits, regardless of the criticism which was passed upon her. She felt sure that the barriers against women would slowly be broken down and that the time was coming when women would have all the po- litical and industrial privileges of men. Mrs. Howe's close association with most of the great men and women and the most intellectual society of America during the last half century makes her a true representative of the best type of womanhood in American life. It has been her lifelong ambition to exercise influence toward right living. In reply to a remark that her character and appearance resembled that of Queen Victoria, she said that she would far rather be counted among the in- fluential women of America than to be Queen of England. It seems almost impossible to say that her ambition has been realized. But in the quiet of her drawing room she was found at her beat. It was there that her bright- ness of intellect and warmth of woman- ly sentiment shone forth. She never hesitated to give her opinion on any Fubject when questioned. The following are some of her ideas of young women : "The world looks to women and depends upon them for its moral and spiritual advancement. They are going up and men are going with them. One sex cannot advance alone, the progress must be mutual. That is why I believe in co-education." "It is sometimes said that women are what men make them. It is much truer to say that men are what women make them. The best elements of society are conserved in women." Mrs. Howe thinks that out of the stimulating new conditions will come the representative twentieth century American girl, who will be the high- est type of girl the world has seen. Mrs. Howe's daughters have been followers of htjr theories. They have seen their mother preside over suffrage societies all their lives and as they grew older each of them took active- part. Thru all their works can be seen the leaven of their mother's spirit, the love of liberty. . Julia Ward Howe had a large circle of friends, her hospitailty was bound- less. She was just, pure, generous, and affectionate. She possessed re- markable intellectual power, force of will, elaborate culture and power of eloquence. Entering with all her heart intc the cause of liberty, her ability, patriotism, and power with the pen naturaly . drew upon her a large participation in the most im- portant, concerns Wherever she was there was found a soul devoted to the cause, power to defend and main- tain it, andwilingnes to incur all its hazards. The objects of her life were ac- complished and the drama was ready to be closed on Octiber seventeen, nineteen hundred and ten. It has closed only over mature years, over long protracted public service, over the weakness of age and over life itself, only when the course of life had been fulfilled. Her departure has left an immense void in American society. Her life was blended with the history of the country, her death has touched the strings of public sympathy. The tree which she had helped to plant is flourishing, its leaves are green and buds are coming forth, the branches are continually increasing the length of their protecting arms, no storm is able to overturn it, for its roots have taken a firm hold. Thanksgiving Banquet A large gathering of students and friends of the college enjoyed the banquet at the ladies' dormitory on Thursday. It is customary for the senior class to arrange decorations and toasts, both of which were admirably planned this season. Some party kindly presented chrysanthemums for the tables. The dining hall looked very pretty when the jolly company filed into their places »s assigned by card. President Keister offered the blessing and the following menu was served : Roast Turkey Giblet Sauce Cranberry Sauce Sweet Potatoes Lima Beans Celery Olives Scalloped Oysters Fruit Salad Salted Wafers Ice Cream Cocoanut Cake Salted Nuts Chocolate Mints Coffee. The last course was followed by the toasts. Mr. 0. T. Ehrhart, '11, was toastmaster. He presented the different speakers of the occasion in his usual affable and pleasing manner. The first speaker introduced was Mr. Harry Charlton, "4, who spoke on ' ' Freshman Impressions. ' ' The speaker very ably and pleasantly handled his subject from a Freshman's stand point. "The White and Blue" by Miss Edna Yarkers, '13, could not have been better rendered. Her thought was superb, and the call for devotion to the old emblem impressed all present with a new sense of appreciation for their Alma Mater. Absolutely impartial as far as ties are concerned, sympathetic in her criticism, generous in her feelings and kindly to her enemies, Miss Lizzie Lau, '12, presented "Our Seniors." Mr. Artus O. Kauffman, '11 the 1 COLLEGE NEWS last speaker, spoke on "Evolutions. " Among the serious evolutions mentioned were those of the campus, of ideals, the faculty and finance. Mr. Kauff-nan had a pathetic subject, but he made it interesting and as painless as possible for those who knew condi- tions. President Keister made a short ad- dress, on " Happiness "'. and the value in making it an immediate issue. It makes us all feelgood to hear the good wit and humor as well as the wholesome advice of our worthy Presi- dent. As a suitable climax to our happy banquet, the Alma Mater was sung and a yell given for Lebanon Valley. Items of Interest Porf. H. E.

We present with this issue of the "News"a picture of the late President Bierman, the anniversary of whose birth occurred December 1. Dr. Bier- man was a warm friend of the college. He was a member of the first Faculty and at the time of his death he held the important position of Treasurer. During the severe financial crisis of the nineties he was its President. Dr. Bierman's thorough and acccurate knowledge of the history of the college, his acquaintance with the constituency and particularly with the al Jmni, added to his deep devotion to the college in its varied interests made his advice and hi3 suggestion almost invaluable. During the later years of his official relationship he endeared himself to the students by his intelligent sympathy with their work. The securing of the "Dodge Fund" thru his uniiring efforts is only one of the many lasting monuments to the honored memory of Dr. Bierman at Lebanon Valley College. Always loyal to the college and its interests, however dark the gathering clouds of opposition were, his true devotion to her welfare, and the firmness with which he followed his convictions, should be a lesson to all students and Alumni of Lebanon Valley to redouble their energies for h^r service.

Two years ago we were told that however great was the need of a college paper, it would be impossible to interest enough of the alumni to make it a paying proposition. Those who advised us thus were wrong. Our present manager has greatly increased the subscription list, has pushed the advertising scheme success- fully, has secured second class rates from Uncle Sam, and fared admirably with the printers. Now it seems that some alumni are still dubious without having reason to be so. We do not mean to say by this that we can get along without their support, far fr^m it, but we do wish to say that if the paper does not reach the demand of some, we would beg leave to state that we are "living within our means." We feel quite sure that most of our subscribers are well aware of our limits as well as our possibilities, and that if subscribers and staff will co- operate in thought and criticism, there will soon open up larger fields for this publication. We need the support of every alumnus, and it has been very gratify- ing to the staff to see how loyally the alumni have been responding. To get an idea of what some have been doing, we would inform our readers that all the members of the classes "1909" and "1910" have subscribed, even some of their ex-members. That is just how important they deem their connection with their alma mater. Alumnus, if you are in touch with classmate or a friend who is not getting the "News," write to him immediately and impress upon his mind, bow necessary his subscription is for any growth or advancement in its columns. We are open to suggestions at any time, and you may feel sure that as soon as every alumnus and student puts himself on record as a worker for better "News," the staff will not be guilty of keeping it back. Consevatory of Music The cloaing recital by students of the Conservatory will be given Thurs- day, December 15th, at 8:00 p. m. in Engle Auditorium. The public is cor- dially invited to attend. The November Recital Class was given on the 15th, the following appearing on the program : Piano solos , Misses Myrl Behney, Maude Kershner, Bertha Spessard, Grace Smith, Kath- erine Mozor, Anna Fry and Mr. G. Frederick Botts. Songs, Miss Helen Brightbill and Mr. Botts. Organ, Misses Ora Bachman and Ruth Det- weiler. Miss Alice Keath, Penrvn, Pa. visited Miss Meda Diehm at the Ladies' Hall recently. Some very promising material has been lined up for Glee Club and re- hearsals are in progress. Good tenor voices will still receive consideration. Miss Katherine Mozer has been absent from classes the past week due to sickness. Present to Clios We are glad to announcce that the Clionian society has recently received a valuable dictionary for use at the critic's desk. This was the gift of Miss Dodge, and is only one of the many ways in which she is constantly expressing her sympathy for, and desire to help, the student body. Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. The leader of the very interesting joint session was Miss Edna Yarkers. The topic under disussion was "Mis- sions in Africa." Miss Yarkers showed how important Africa is for Christian missions. She also pointed out how very critical this period is in Christian missions. The Y. W. C. A. quartette then rendered a selection which was very much appreciated. Mr Leibold followed with a talk on "The Need of Industrial Missions in Africa.." He clearly showed that in order to permanently insure the success of missions, mis- sionaries must teach the natives to work. Work is the basis of real in- dependence. Miss Spessard gave a report of the United Bretl ren activities in their mis- sionary work of Africa. An interesting discussion followed in which Professor Shenk pointed out the great work that Lebanon Valley has done, and is doing for Africa. He also showed what requirements are necessary for a missionary to-day. Among other things ,a missionary must be broad minded, he must study primitive races and lay special stress on the industrial training of the con- verted heathen. This meeting was well attended and everyone enjoyed the program which was well rendered. Mathematical Round Table The regular monthly meeting of the mathematicael Round Table was held on Wednesday evening, in Professor Lehman's recitation room. Lester Spessard presented the "Theory of Limits. " He read several short articles on the subject and made appropriate comments . As this subject is one of vital interest to all mathematicians, it called forth a very animated disccussion. One phase of it was the age at which students are able to grasp the Theory of Limits, and the advisability of its being taught in high schools. John Lehman read a very interesting paper on ' ' The Relation of mathematics to other Sciences." He showed par- ticularly its importance in Physics, Chemistry and Astronomy. The interest in the Round Table is- steadily growing. Several new mem- bers were added at this meeting.

Matters Historical EARLY HISTORY OF THE COL- LEGE IN THE LIGHT OF THE CONTEMPORARY PRESS CORNER STONE LAID The corner stone of the new col- lege edifice was laid on the twenty- third ult. Impressive ceremonies were conducted by Rev. W. S. Keys. The scripture lesson being read by President Vickroy and Rev. George A. Marks Jr. After the ceremonies the audience marched in procession to the United Brethren Church where an able address was delivered by the Hon. J. P. Wickersham, State Superintendent of public schools. Senor Sarmiento, Minister Plenipotentiary of Argentine Republic to the United States and can- didate for President of his own coun- try, was present, being on a tour of investigation of the public school sys- tem of this country. Everything passed off delightfully, and the friends of the college are very cheerful, being certain of success. Lebanon Valley College is a regular- ly chartered institution and will soon rank among the first colleges of the state. During the last year the insti- tution has met with so much encourage- ment that its freinds have concluded to add another building which we under- stand is to be one of the largest and perhaps the most elegantly planned in this state. Prof. T. R. Vickroy, the President of the college, is a gentleman of fine attainments and a live teacher. He has won the affections of all the students and he is assisted by teachers, all of whom stand high in their respec- tive departments. We take pleasure in recommending this institution to parents who desire to educate their sons and daughters, Parties desiring a circular showing the design of the new building and grounds should addiess Rev. T. R.Vickory, Annville, Pa. —From Commercial Monthly, York, Pa., Sept. 1, 1867. Ex- L. V. Man State Star Foot Ball Player Rex John, the 19-year old Wilkins- burg athlete, the star fullback ofOtter- bein University, by his good all- round work won a place on the All" Ohio team at fullback. His playing has been close to marve- lous starring in every game, being the only man to cross Ohio State's Goal line during the entire season, State playing such teams as Michigan, Cincinnati and Oberlin. John is not only good on account of his terrifiic line plunging, but is also good because of long end runs. Not only is he apt in that department of the game, but also ranks as a classy kicker. His punting has been splendid, and he has also proved himself a good goal kicker. Much of the credit for John's play- ing is due to coach Exendine, of Carlisle, All American end for 1906. now coach at Otterbein. He has developed John in a remarkable manner, and this famous exponent of the open game claims that John could make any team in the country. John was a member of the class of 1910 at L. V. In his freshman year he was varsity full back. He was then 15 years old. ALUMNI NOTES Freshman-Sophomore Foot- ball Game On Tuesday, Nov. 22, a hard-fought football game took place on the College Gridiron when the Freshman and Soph- omore classes met in their annual con- test. The Sophomore team was handi- capped by their lack of weight and ex- perience, both of which were the Fresh- men's strong points. The Sophomores had an entirely green line, while the Freshmen had seven varsity players. The Freshmen also cut-weighed their opponents about ten pounds to the man. Kreider, Hummel, Light, and Biever starred for the victors while the tack- ling of B. I ight, E. Loser and Richie and the punting of Heffelfinger were the mainstays of the Sophomores. All of the scoring was dene in the first half/the plucky Sophs preventing their heavier opponents from scoring in the second. The final score was 22-0 in favor of the Freshmen.

By eight o'clock a large majority of the members of both classes had arrived at the home of Florence Christeson, '13, where the festivities were held. At a given signal the parlors re- sounded with the Sophomore yell, which was immediately answered by the Seniors. The evening was spent in music and various games, after which very delightful refreshments were serv- ed. Toasts were by no means lacking. G. A. Richie, 13, acted as toast- master, and the following toasts were responded to: '11 Boys, SarahjZimmer- man; '11 Girls, A. H. Wiegel; '18 Girls, V. D. Mulhollen; '13 Boys, Clara Horn.

OLD AD-BUILDING ft We present with this issue a picture of the old Administration building ■which was completely destroyed by fire on the evening of December 24, 1904. As the majority of the students were at their homes for their Christmas vacation when the fire ocurred, the personal loss was heavy. Most of the valuable records of the College were also lost at this time. The newly equipped administration building which was built immediately after the fire is situated on the site of the old building. My College TO LEBANON VALLEY College Day O college ever noble college ever free, May all thy sons be willing To do their best for thee !

December 11, was set apart as College Day, when the cause of Education was presented to the people. No offerings were asked for, but the services of the day were only an in- telligent enlistment of the people so that in due season they may respond both in students and money. To achieve the greatest possible success, an exchange of pulpits has been recommended ever since this day has been inaugurated, three yaers ago. At no time has any minister in the county failed to work the plan. The appointments for the exchange of pul. pits as adDpted was as follows: Columbia a, A. G. Nye, Centerville, C. Mease Denver, J. M.

A. received its first official visit from the new State Students' Seretary, Mr. Irvin E. Deer. We were pleased to make the personal acquaintance of our new leader, and learn of his plans for carrying on the work during the new year. That the Y. M. C. A. upheld by the student bodies of the various Colleges over the country are doing a great and good work, cannot be gainsaid. Every where the influence which results from their operations is felt. As a local Association, we desire to make this influence as great as possible, and in order to have this result, the helping hand of every College man is needed and solicited. The presence of a large number of men insures better addresses than when the leaders are obliged to speak to audiences composed largely of vacant chairs. The secretary had conferences with each committee separately, and gave much sound advice relating to the work of the various departments. One department in which the whf le As- sociation is interested is the work in the quarries adjacent to Annville. This work is being carried on regularly and should been encouraged. There is no reason why the influence of the Y. M. C. A. should not be made to bear strongly on those men who cannot even speak our language intelligently. They learn readily, and every effort should be made to help them to the light. We were pleased to entertain our new leader for the few days he remained with us. Anyone who heard his splen- did address in Chapel on Thursday morning can readily see his extreme in- terest in his new field of labor. Our desire is that he may often visit our Association, as he is always very welcome. Athletic Election The winter election of the College Athletic Association was held last Thursday afternoon in Professor Wanner's lecture room with a large attendance. As is shown by the results, two new departments are represented this year, namely, track and tennis. The new constitution which was adopted in the fall calls for these departments. The Track managers will begin operations as soon as possible for the building of a cinder track on the Athletic field. The Athletic Association is also working to get tennis under its supervision in order that the College may be better represented in that department. Each of these new managers should have all the encouragement and asistance that it is posisble to give. The results of the eleciton are as follows : President, C. F-Harnish, '12; Secretary, E. G. Loser '13; Football manager, Oliver B. Butterwick '12: Ass't football manager, G. Richie '13 ; Track manager E. A. Spessard '11; Ass't track manag- er, E. H. Carmany, '12; Tennis Manag- er, Catherine, E. Hershey, '12; Ass't Tennis manager , Russel Weidler 14. According to the constitution the remaining officers of the Association will be elected at the April election. The Varsity football men who were granted sweaters and Varsity letters this year were: F. S. Hensel, '12, F. L. Frost, '11, Capt. J.K. Lehman, '11, J. E. Marshall, '11, F R. Kenne- dy;'^, H. H. Charlton, '14, Warren Hayes, '14, W. D. Biever, '14, H. H. Kreider, '14, Paul Loser, '13, and Manager O. T. Ehrhart '11. Y. W. C. A. A large number of girls were present on Sunday afternoon and enjoed one of the best meetings of the year. The president opened the meeting with a short and spirited song service. Miss Florence Roland sang a very beautiful solo after which Miss Parks gave a very interesting and helpful talk. She is deeply interested in soccial problems in our great cities and chose that as her subject having had personal ex- perience in this line, she understands conditions as they exist. She said it is interesting to note in the Bible how much stress the prophets, in their preaching place on the oppression of the poor. The problem is by no means new, but it is still facing us, and every true Christain must share in righting the social evils. Every girl present was intensely in- terested in Miss Parks' remarks and received a broader conception of her duty toward her fellowmen. New Foot Ball Captain Last week the Varsity letter men met and elected Forrest S. Hensel," '12, as captain of the foot ball team for next year. Since a number of new men were broken in this year, the prospexts for a good team next year are very good. Captain Hensel is a good, clean, consistent, all-around player, and should keep plenty of life in the team. He was a star player at the Lykens high school, when attending that school and has been a Varsity man ever since his Freshmen year in College. The "News" congratulates Captain Hensel, and wishes him a most suc- cessful season next year. Y. M. C. A. The Y. M. C. A. session of Sunday afternoon was one^ull of live interest. V. D. Mulhollan, the leader, read the sixth chapter of Galatians as a lesson, and based his remarks on that scripture. Many good thoughts were brought out along the line of personal responsibility and helping each other. The meeting was interesting in that a good number were present, and several fine addresses were made. Among those who spoke on different phases of the subject we:e Messrs. Leibold, L. B. Harnish, Young, Murray, Richie and Brunner. COLLEGE NEWS SOCIETY PROGRAMS PHILOKOSMIAN Resume, Lester Rodes ; The work of the Professional Strike Breaker, J. E.

STATE COLLEGE HOLDS ANNUAL EVENT At the request of the School of Agriculture and Experiment Station Pennsylvania State College, we pub- lish the following article: "Farmers' Week at The Pennsyl- vania State College will be held this year December 19 to 24th, inclusive. A splendid opportunity is offered to all farmers interested in a better agriculture. Lectures on live topics will be given by men who have practical experience as viell as scientific know- ledge. In addition to the lectures, many practical demonstrations in judg- ing dairy cattle, beef cattle, horses, sheep, swine and poultry will be given. The program is so arranged that any individual can attend lectures during each period upon the subjects which interest him most. "Many of the speakers are men of national prominence in their respective lines from this and other states. Every farmer, who can possibly do so, should arrange to spend at least a part of the week in getting into touch with this practical science which is offered, " Outlook for Track The new track manager contemplates building a new quarter-mile track around the athletic field and running a short season. This track will cost a great deal of money if the manager has to depend upon out siders to do the work at several dollars per day. But WINDSOR HOTEL W. T. BRUBAKER, Manager.

This happy day will not be ordered for a month or so, but let every student goad himself until then with keenest antici- pation for that event. Items of Interest Don't forget to include the COL- LEGE NEWS in your Christmas pre- sents. Lebanon Valley College has been recognized by the State SupremeCourt to the extent that graduates who wish to study law are not required to take the preliminary law examination before entering a law school. A large College pennant has been presented to the Boys' Department of the Kensington Y. M. C. A. recent- ly. The management of that depart- ment requested that this be done, as he is collecting pennants from Univer- sities, Colleges, Preparatory and High Schools, with two purposes in view. One is to decorate their rooms, and the other is that the pennants may be a constant reminder to the boys of the possibility of a higher education. Ralph RiegeL who was at his home at Millersburg since Thanksgiving returned to school last week . Coach H. M. Forrest, of Lancaster, spent Saturday and Sunday with friends at the College. A number of students enjoyed a coasting party on "Gravel Hill" last Saturday evening.

He pointed out the importance of Kepler's work as a foundation for the work of later mathematicans and scientists. ''The Preparation Necessary for a Teacher in Secondary Schools" was presented by Miss Edna Kilmer.

Jesse Reed demonstrated five methods, not usually found in text- books, of proving the Pythagorean Pro- position. This is one of the most in- teresting propositions in Mathematics, as there are nearly fifty methods of proof. The members of the Round Table were glad to see so many visitors Present and extend to them a hearty invitation to come again.

This question may be answered in two ways. To those who are not intimately acquainted with the situation and hence cannot_undertsand the real causes, the immediate results must be far from satisfactory. When the true facts in the case are con- sidered however the worst features are to a certain extent smoothed over. It is true that some of the greatest victories in history have been preceeded by conditions, which from any im- mediate conclusion would have presaged utter defeat. We must bear in mind that Appomattox was the conclusion of the struggle in which Bull Run was the beginning, and yet after Bull Run all the way to Appomattox the hearts of many brave men were utterly deject- ed, nor were they to blame. Some men, however could see thru the clouds of smoke and beheld a glorious vision. As the days passed the number of these men increased. The defeats caused the true lines of battle to be drawn, the true nature of the conflict upon all, and a spirit of strongest downward determination swetpt the arms of our nation to victory. Without the dark struggle the final victory would lose much of its glory. The greatest crisis in the history of our athletic circles is now on. Some of our best men are discouraged and from their view point they inave just cause so to be. But there are some features of our situation that are most grati- fying. We have a new constitution which promises to become most useful in giving all our athletics a definite and approved status. The intense feeling aroused by our recent season has turned the eyes of those men who are in a position to remedy matters in the proper direction. All see that without athletics our institution must fail and that to have a successful season we must have the hearty co-operation of the President, faculty and student body. True lines of battle are being drawn. Sentiment is rapidly crystallizing in such a manner that in the very near future every one connected, with ovir institution will be compelled to take a definite position, and in spite of sup- posed sympathies and ' good wishes either take a firm stand for athletics or bring upon his acts the censure and condemnation that they would so justly deserve. In this case the censure will not be the voice of the student body, alone, but the expression of those who have the power to act as ' well as criti- cize To attempt to build up a pro- gressive college without in the least considering the vital question of athletics or at the very most, relega- ting them to the last place on the pro- gram is a policy that is sure to bring final ruin. The day for conservatism is past and the day for hearty co- poration of the alumni, authorities and student body at hand. Shall we take advatnage of the present crisis and form a definite agressive athletic policy for our college, our Alma Mater or shall we stand idly by and let our very in- difference bring about our final de- struction ? Let every one who has the welfare of Lebanon Valley at heart act on this most momentous question.

Missionary Meeting JOINT SESSION OF THE Y. M. AND Y. W. C. A. On Sundaj afternoon we were pleased to have Miss Brown address the meeting, Miss Brown is a Traveling Secretary of the Student Volunteer Movement. She showed in a very interesting manner the great world movements that are taking place today. She told us of the great meetings that are being held in all parts of the world and their significance to us as a Christian peopie. She quoted from n any great men of world wide fame to show the importance of Missions. Kings and Emperors, Presidents and the greatest leaders ofjhe world today realize the great good that Missions will acccomplish. Liss Brcwn contrasted very'' well the intense interest that many Chinese and other non-Christian people take in the Christian religion, as compared with many in our land. She s t. 3 scarcity of the workmen in comparison tothemagni- tude'of the task, quoting statistics to prove her case. Her illustrations of the great resources of these non-Christian pecple w.ere very apt and startling. The leader pointed out two great crise s that gave to the twentieth century a cerrair, individuality. The great awakening at home in the cause of missions, and the interest in foreign missions. She showed the crowded con- dition of the field at home, the need and smallness of the number of the workers in the foreign fields and the practical nature of this work with the large field ready for the harvest. The challenge was given to all Christian students to awaken to the full realiza- tion of their responsibilities. To take a greater interest i cause, because of the practib of this movement and the critical nature of the present crisis. In conclusion, Miss Brr wn illustrated the requirements of the present situation by a story. By means she showed that it was not scep- ticism, dogmatism or emotionalism, but practical methods that will solve this great issue. Every one present was intensely interested in her talk. Miss Brown practises what she preache for she will soon go to China in obe- dience to the Divine command "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations." Mission Class Ent>ert>ained On Saturday evening, Mrs. Keister very pleasantly entertained the Mission Study Class of the Y. W. C. A. This class has been devoting its time, during the fall term, to a careful study of South America. Mrs. Keister, as leader of the class, has made the work very interesting and instructive. A portion of Saturday evening? was given to a brief summary of the work covered, after which a pleasant social time was enjoyed. The New Reading Room The members of the Y. W. C. A. have recently opened a reading room on the third floor of the Ladies Dormi- tory, contributions in the line of books or furnishings will be gratefully received.- The room will be'open all the time and it is desired that the girls make good use of it.
